Water skiing is a popular global sport with tens of millions of participants. Every year in March, Melbourne’s Yarra River is the site of the  Moomba Masters Water Skiing Championships. The world’s second most prestigious water skiing event attracts athletes from many countries, including the USA and Canada. Held in conjunction with the Moomba Festival, the free event attracted 200,000 viewers, and was broadcast live via the Internet. The photos here were taken during the first Saturday’s semi-final women’s slalom (water skiing).
