Cambridge waterskier Whitney McClintock was back on the podium this past weekend at the Masters Waterski and Wakeboard Tournament in Pine Mountain, Georgia.

Facing challenging wind conditions, McClintock scored 1.5 @ 11.25m in the semifinals to advance to the finals where she ran 1.5 @ 10.75m to finish third overall.

The Masters is highly regarded in the world of waterskiing and is considered the premier event on the watersports calendar, attracting the top athletes in the sport from around the world each year.

McClintock has been a standout for Water Ski Canada for over a decade, having won several championships and awards throughout her career. 

Coming from a family of water skiers, McClintock's aunt, Jody McClintock-Messer, was a waterski world champion in 1985 and 1995. Her uncle Joel was a world champion in 1979 and brother Jason won three medals at the Pan-Am Games. Her father also donned the red and white of the national team.

“Cambridge and Puslinch Lake will always be my home,” she told CambridgeToday last fall. 

“I grew up in a place that facilitated and supported my growth in my sport. I will always call Cambridge home and will always be grateful that my family decided to take up roots on Puslinch Lake.”

McClintock is an 11-time Pan Am Games medallist, five times winning gold, and a six-time world champion.
