Mike Mosley (USA), appointed by the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation as the 2021 World Games’ Competition Manager, and Maria Isabel Mancheno (COL), Vice President of IWWF Pan Am, attended the meeting.
Oak Mountain State Park has been designated the venue for waterskiing (slalom, trick and jump) and wakeboard events.
Besides the venues, the Competition Managers gained information about schedules, rules and practices, accommodation, transportation and medical services, communication and TV, and FICS sports chiropractic services.
The Competition Manager will now begin his work, with 2½ years remaining before the next edition of The World Games, as a link between the local organiser and the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation.
