When it was recently announced that Australia’s Emma Sheers was to be inducted into the IWWF International Hall of Fame in August, all agreed that she was indeed a very worthy athlete.
With over 90 professional victories, Emma Sheers captured the title of World Champion in Jump in 1999 and 2003 and in Slalom in 2001 and 2003. She also broke the World Women’s Jump Record in 1996, 2000 and 2002 and even set a World Ski Fly Record of 66.6m in 2000.
Having broken World Records for over 20 years, and suddenly coming out of retirement now, the big question is what can she achieve at the 2019 IWWF World Waterski Championships in Putrajaya, Malaysia. Might she even challenge for a podium position?
No doubt, induction into the IWWF International Hall of Fame must someday come again for Emma Sheers. In the meantime, the thrill of seeing her taking on the best in the world will capture the imagination of most waterski fans around the world this August in Malaysia.
