Bob Corson, Chairman IWWF Ranking
The Waterski Council decided that because of the effects of the global pandemic which meant that many skiers did not have the opportunity to record scores and that the total number of scores was greatly reduced, that the 2021 May Rankings would be a combination of the 2020 rankings and the 2021 rankings. One important decision is that skiers would at least retain their 2020 ranking position in the 2021 rankings. The effect of this is that the actual ranking number assigned may not be in sequential order but nevertheless that is the official ranking.
specific combination process
1. for each division, each skier collect 2020 and 2021 ranking data and placement
2. extract the better performance from 2020 and 2021 data only lists but retain the 2020 placement
3. List performances in order for each division and assign ranking as either the sequential placement number or the 2020 ranking whichever is higher
Note: The format has been changed to order the list by rank rather than performance (2/16/21)
The following Ranking List will not be used for the 2020 World U-17 selections of "Skiers eligible to ski as Individuals" because skiers from YOB 2003 are not included.
