Saskatoon boys heading to Spain for World Junior Water Ski Championship

WATCH: Pro skier and world record holder, Ryan Dodd, talks about upcoming World Junior Water Ski Championship and the two Saskatoon boys competing.


A couple of Saskatoon boys are gearing up for their biggest competition yet.

Carter Lucas, 15, and Josh Edwards, 16, are part of the six-person national team heading to Spain for the World Junior Water Ski Championships in August.

The boys will be competing in three events: slalom, tricks and jump.

Their coach, Ryan Dodd, said this will be the biggest milestone in their life.

“If they take it right and they enjoy it and have a good time I think it’ll be the turning point for them where, maybe they do this forever.”

Edwards recently beat his own personal best, jumping 164 feet at Dodd’s home site in Florida.

The World Junior Water Ski Championships are from August 2 to 5.
