For the 18th year, Team Nautique skier Rhoni Barton Bischoff has been selected to be a part of the 2009 U.S. Elite Water Ski Team. Rhoni received this honor following the conclusion of the 2009 U.S. Water Ski Team Trials which took place June 19-21 in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
As a member of this esteemed six-member team, Rhoni will compete in the 31st Water Ski World Championships which will take place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, August 4-9. The United States has won four consecutive world team titles at the world championships, held biyearly. At the last world championships, she was the only U.S. Team skier in which case all of her scores were used to beat out France for the victory.
Way to go Rhoni!
