It was my first competition with the world’ best figurists, in addition to a magnificent site and with many spectators.
It was a really great experience, and it only makes me want to go back. I was really happy to be part of an event like this.

There was a great atmosphere, water skiing is a sport where we all know each other it’s like a big family !
