Nautique athlete Jacinta Carroll’s Jump World Records set behind the PCM powered Ski Nautique 200 set on September 26th have been officially approved by the IWWF Tournament Council. Carroll shocked the world during the Ski Fluid Invitational in Polk City setting back-to-back world records of 194 feet (59.2 meters) and 198 feet (60.3 meters). Carroll’s final record-breaking jump marked the first time a female has ever broken the 60-meter barrier.
“Jumping 60 meters has been a goal of mine ever since I can remember. I learned to ski behind a Nautique; I grew up behind Nautiques and to be able to achieve such a feat of 60m behind the Ski Nautique is simply overwhelming. I am so thankful to have the ability to jump and compete behind the industry’s best boat which enables me to push the world record limits day in day out!” said Carroll.
The Ski Nautique 200 has now officially pulled twenty-one world records among all three waterski disciplines (slalom, trick, and jump) since it hit the water in 2010. In addition to Carroll’s records, three pending trick world records have been set behind the Ski Nautique 200 within the past month and once approved will officially bring the 200’s world-record count to twenty-four.
“Congratulations to Jacinta on the approval of her amazing world records set behind the Ski Nautique 200,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “With three more world records awaiting approval, the rapid progression we continue to see behind the 200 is exciting. Our innovation on the water is proven as history is made time and time again behind our boats. Our team remains committed to the development of products that create the ability to explore what’s next,” added Meloon.
