ORLANDO, FLA (September 21, 2011) — Team Nautique athlete, Clementine Lucine, set two new World Records; the first in Tricks with 10,040 points and the Overall with 2,971 points behind the world-renowned Ski Nautique 200 pending approval from the International Waterski Wakeboard Federation (IWWF).
Lucine’s overall score of 2,971 points was a combination of 10,040 points in tricks, a slalom run of 5.5@38-off and 163 feet in jump! Besides the excitement of two World Records for Lucine, she was also the first female to trick over 10,000 points making history while competing in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Lucine made a few adjustments such as becoming quicker in toe tricks which allowed her to add two 180’s. She also did an in hands back landing reverse instead of a back roll which allowed her to gain 260 points more than her previous record.
“A few years back, no one thought women would trick over 10,000 points but with the support of sponsors, coaches, family and friends I started dreaming about it last year, commented Team Nautique skier, Clementine Lucine. “The Ski Nautique 200 is the best 3-event boat in the world and to be able to both train and compete behind the Nautique made all of the difference,” added Lucine.
“Our Nautique family is incredibly proud of Clementine and excited by these two pending world records set behind the Ski Nautique,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “This is the fifth and sixth time the Ski Nautique 200 has pulled a new world record in its short two year history!” Yeargin added.
