I am in San Gervasio BS. Italy again in this 2018 season.
2018 The best moments in my Water ski career:

2018 IWWF Europe & Africa 35+ Waterski Championships 23-26/08/2018
Hufeisensee Halle/Saale, Germany

Glad to win 3 gold medals in my first Europeans over 45+ S2 category and in my water ski carrier of participating at Seniors Europeans it is already 18th gold medals, 9 silver and 1 bronze.
 I get, first place in Slalom with 5/55/11.25, first place in Jumping with 44.8 m. and first place in Overall with 3000 points.
My final round in tricks was not good at all, by falling on my first SL5F I lost my medal in tricks and become 6th but preliminary score 5170 points was enough to win my overall champion title.
Competition official boat was Bosh which was not easy at all to ski behind but it was the same for everybody. Specially glad to win Jumping event with no training for this event almost 5 years and doing only important competitions because of my knee problem. Testing of new knee protection helped a lot also it was my first year I had to jump at 150 cm. ramp height because of new category +45. Final score 44.8 was also important for my overall score to win skier from France Raoul Gabriel as well as in jumping too.
To win Slalom event is always big success for me too, spatially for my sponsor Sans Rival who gives me free equipment and such an excellent ski which I use already 6 years and have won 2 times European seniors
championships on it.
I was last skier in finals which was good to know result and stressful at the same time too.
By turning around 5th buoy at 11.25, already I knew I become a winner and it was so exciting for me, even big crash going to number 6 buoy I had no any pain, which I felt later on my shoulder before next jumping event.
