|Please help the International Water Ski Federation (IWSF) in its efforts to include the sport of water skiing in the 2004
Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Your generous donation will have a direct positive impact on the ability of IWSF officers to meet with International Olympic
Committee (IOC) officials to present the story of water skiing.|
Approximately 30 million people participate in the sport worldwide, with more than 50,000
competing in tournaments. National water ski federations have been established in 76 Countries. As of May 1999, 46 national Olympic committees have declared in
writing that they support the inclusion of water skiing in the 2004 Olympic Games. Supporters
in 22 Countries have already sent donations to help fund IWSF efforts to promote the sport among IOC officials.
Finally, more than 36,000 water ski friends on three continents have signed petitions supporting the water ski Olympic quest. All that's needed now is your financial
support to enable the IWSF to complete the work required to gain Olympic statues. Our time has come but without your
financial support, the IWSF cannot realize its dream.
Water skiing - a new Olympic sport
for the next millennium!
Wouldn't it be rewarding to see Juan Antonio Samaranch, IOC president, present a gold medal to a water skier such as Helena Kjellander,
a four-time women's slalom world champion from Sweden? Kjellander and Samaranch are pictured during a water ski demonstration held last summer in Seville, Spain.
In June 1999, we received the great news that the Greek National Olympic
Committee have just brought us even closer to Olympic Games success. They
have given written confirmation to the IOC that Waterskiing is their choice
new sport for Athens 2004. At this time, no other sport has been proposed.
This increases the need for your financial support even more. We are on
the last lap - and it boils down to whether we can afford to keep this
project active and focussed. All we need now is IOC approval - and your
funds to make it happen
