"And here's a look at one of the stories we're working on for Friday's broadcast:
This national champion water skier is a tough competitor. She does trick skiing and is still ranked. Would you care to guess her age? She'll tell you on Friday's CBS EVENING NEWS with Katie Couric. She's part of Assignment America and you may not believe her age!"

This 81yr old is Charlotte Melchers of West Palm Beach Florida. She's a waterski hall of famer and top judge in the US and been teaching, skiing and judging for probably 30+ years!

Special insiders report that Charlotte actually skied and Steve Hartman also skied so hopefully they will show that as well. They also interviewed her at her home. She is very excited and is having a party tonight for the viewing!!!
