Here’s the second update we’ve received back from the group over in China. This update is from Tiffany.
After arriving to Liuzhou on Thursday the group decided to check out the city. The water festival was going on near our hotel, which had people running an inflatable obstacle course like the one on the show wipeout, and also people of all ages in a swimming pool. We all thought they were just having a good time splashing around, but after further observation we figured out they were trying to catch fish that were in this pool.
We finally hit the water Friday afternoon for a practice with the Chinese. The weather was beautiful and the water conditions were not too bad. We had a great practice. Our 4 high pyramid was up down and in BEAUTIFULLY. Everyone was shocked how smooth it went. We were all really happy with the way we skied.
Competition day was today. We had two “competitions”. The Chinese skied an act then we did, having 6 acts total for each team. We skied well with a few minor falls on the first show, but still lost to the Chinese by only 12 points. We all gathered for lunch and then skied the second show. We once again had a great show as did the Chinese and won by 5 points! Overall the Chinese won, but we were all VERY happy with how we skied.
Here are some pictures, and a video…
