Southville Student Wins in National Wakeboard Tilt

In a rough sport dominated by men, Kelsey Albano, Grade 10 student of Southville International School and Colleges (SISC), proved that real athletes know no gender. She recently finished in 2nd place in the 6th Philippine Wakeboard Nationals held at Republic Wakepark, Nuvali last August 17-19, 2012.

 

With her routine’s technical difficulty, the intensity and variety of her tricks, as well as her performance over obstacles and the overall fluidity of the run, Kelsey bested other wakeboard riders around the country.

 

Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which was developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing techniques.
