In a city known for its talent on the water, another water skier with a Cambridge connection is getting ready to compete at an international event.

Wendy Durigon will be skiing in the 45+ slalom event at the upcoming IWWF 35+ Pan American Water Ski Championships in Harmony, North Carolina.

“Water Ski Canada is proud to announce the dynamic roster of 29 distinguished athletes set to represent Canada,” Water Ski Canada said in a press release.
