Olympic Games Sites Welcome Wakeboarding

Ever since the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced a shortlist of new sports to be considered for inclusion in the 2020 Games, speculation on the outcome has been a major discussion point. The very recent exclusion of Wrestling has also been controversial and adds to the enormous publicity surrounding these Olympic developments. Wakeboard is one of the selected sports for the 2020 Games. As a youth focused lifestyle board sport, it would certainly add a totally new dimension to the Olympics. Board sports are thriving in all forms with Snowboard achieving enormous success in the past Winter Games. The International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) launched a major supporting campaign some time ago under the heading of WAKEBOARD 2020 VISION to bring Wakeboard to the Games. The IWWF will make a final presentation to the IOC Executive Board in St Petersburg, Russia, at the end of this month. They will make their final selection in September. Wakeboarding was also featured at the 37th IWWF World Cup Stop in Palembang Indonesia two weeks ago, and will appear at Beijing's Olympic Lake on June 8/10, in the World Games in Cali, Colombia on July 25/Aug 4, as well as the Wakeboard World Championships in Busan, South Korea on August 28/Sept 1. MasterCraft will continue to provide the World Cup competition boats and support services as they have done since the inauguration of the World Cup Series in 2004.
