International Water Ski Racing Online Since 1996

Kim Lumley (2006)

24 year old Kim Lumley became the IWSF World Water Ski Racing Champion in June 2005. This fine British athlete only began competing in 1996 and from 1997 she has represented Great Britain at every IWSF World Championship event.
Kim has won the prestigious Diamond Race five times, America’s Catalina Race four times, and Australia’s Sydney Bridge to Bridge in November 2006. Kim is the only European woman to have won the Catalina and the only European person to have won it four times. She has carried the British Women’s title for the last seven years and this year entered the British Men’s Championships and won. This formidable athlete has been European Women’s Champion since 2002.
As a result of her achievements, the freelance fitness instructor from Cambridgeshire has been honoured by British Water Ski with the coveted General Lascelles award and nominated for the Sunday Times Sports Woman of the Year Champions Award. In 2005 she was named BBC Cambridgeshire Sports Personality of the Year. Along with the competition wins, Kim has enjoyed a great deal of Radio and prime-time TV coverage on a variety of well known shows.
The IWSF welcomed Kim onto the World Racing Council in 2005 when she was elected as the IWSF Athlete’s Representative for Racing.
These are only the highlights of the tremendous achievements by one of the most likeable people in our sport.
