Aussie Sport

What a great weekend for Australians and sport!!

First of all it looks like Cadel Evans will be the first Aussie to win the Tour de France! Superb effort in one of the world's most gruelling races!

Secondly, the Australian Water Ski team currently competing at the World Championships in Dubna, Russia are in second place overall with one more day of competition to go. With Ryan and Tim in the jump final, and Cap and Michale in the trick final we could very easily win the World Overall Championship!

Ryan Green (captain), Karina Nowlan, Jacinta Carroll, Cathryn Humphrey, Michale Briant, Sally Morris (manager) and Tim Bradstreet

We've had great results from all the team with each member competing in a final or two. Karina finished 5th in womens slalom, Ryan was 10th in mens trick, and the fantastic Jacinta "Rabbit" Carroll winning silver in the women's jump event at only 18 years of age and at her first World Championships - way to go Rabbit!!
