Two World Champions, 1 second place, 1 third place and the youngest competitor in the pack to narrowly miss the finals at the World Cablewakeboarding Championships in London.
More than enough reason to raise a glass with the entire team, parents and coaches to these surely exceptional achievements.
According to Frank Vanleenhove, the result of years of hard work, many hours of training, pushing each other's limits and especially the work of the coaches who demand the utmost of their riders every time and keep setting the bar very high. So real teamwork but you just have to do it, and be able to master the stress at the right moment.
Alderman for Sport Jan Morbee was therefore very proud to congratulate everyone in the name of the Municipal Council, thanking everyone present and emphasising Lakeside Paradise's strong youth work within the municipality. Lakeside Paradise once again succeeded in putting Knokke-Heist on the world map !
