The national waterski show team was founded in 2011 to compete at the World Championships in 2012 in the United States. The team has known some success since then: Belgium placed 5th in the past two championships.
The Belgian team exists out of water skiers from different teams in Belgium and outside of Belgium. Water skiing and show skiing in particular is a growing sport. We have noticed a considerable increase of skills during practices and competitions. The fact that since the first Worlds some Belgian skiers started water skiing in the USA and China shows that Belgian skiers are getting better and it shows good promise for future competitions.
The national team has two show directors: Lieven Hardy and Jürgen Van Der Heyden. They choose 35 people to form a team that can perform the best waterski show possible.
In September you will be able to watch the Belgians ski at the World Championships via online livestreaming!
