Tom a Moomba ‘Master’

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

Skiing against some of Australia’s and the world’s best skiers, local champion Bundalong skier and Mulwala Water Ski Club member Tom Ryan had a huge crowd on their feet at the Moomba Masters Water Ski Invitational on the Yarra River in Melbourne over the long weekend.

Skiing to make the final eight Tom ran three buoys on the 10.75 metre line to snatch the lead from some fancied internationals in his heat.  His score was enough to get him into the semi-finals where he ran a further two buoys on the 10.75 metre line qualifying him for the final. 

The final comprised eight of the best slalom skiers from around the world of which Tom eventually finished fifth.
