Jaquess Earns Top Honors From IWWF

Regina Jaquess (Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.), who was selected the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation Waterski Council’s 2018 Female Athlete of the Year, has been selected the IWWF’s Female Athlete of the Year for 2018. At the end of each year, all councils of the IWWF select their respective female and male skiers/riders of the year. The IWWF Executive Board members then elect the IWWF Athletes of the Year from their submissions – one female and one male. Barefoot water ski athlete David Small of Great Britain was selected the IWWF’s Male Athlete of the Year.

This marks the fifth time Jaquess has earned the top honor from the IWWF. Jaquess, 34, also was selected the Female Athlete of the Year by USA Water Ski & Wake Sports for the 11th time in her career.

She won professional slalom titles at the Swiss Pro Slalom, Lake 38 Pro-Am, Americas’ Cup Invitational, Malibu Open and California Waterski Pro Am. At the GOODE Water Ski National Championships, she won titles in Open Women slalom, jumping and overall. At the Pan American Water Ski Championships, she won gold medals in Open Women slalom, jumping and overall, and the bronze medal in tricks in leading the U.S. Elite Water Ski Team to the overall team gold medal. She also won the Open Women jumping title at the King of Darkness in November and broke her own current women’s world slalom record with a score of 4 buoys at 41 feet off in July.
