We’re heartbroken to hear about the passing of one of the greatest water ski champions and IWWF International Hall of Fame Inductee, Liz Allan Reid.

No one has ever dominated a skiing division for as long a period and to such a degree as Liz Allan.  She was world overall champion three times: 1965, 1969, and 1975 including a clean sweep at the 1969 World’s, a feat which has never been duplicated. She set four World Jumping Records from 1965 to 1974 and a World Slalom Record in 1975. Liz was on the US team for the World Championships 5 times and won 11 gold medals.

Liz’s dominance elsewhere was equally impressive. She competed in four Group I Championships and won the overall at each of them. In the US Masters tournament she won the overall in 9 consecutive years and also picked up a total of 38 US National gold medals competing from the Jr. Girl’s division to the Open Women’s division.

IWWF sends its deepest condolences to Dr Bruce Reid and his family
