RUSTY MALINOSKI NOMINATED TO TEAM CANADA AS WAKEBOARD ATHLETE FOR TORONTO 2015 PAN AM GAMES
WAKE CANADA (June 3, 2015) Rusty Malinoski, one of Canada’s most decorated wakeboarders has been nominated to represent Team Canada at the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games. Malinoski, the 2013 WWA World Wakeboarding Champion, clinched the Pan Am Games selection with his 2nd place finish at last month’s Nautique Masters Wakeboarding Championship at Callaway Gardens, GA, USA. “I am super honored to be chosen to represent Canada at the Pan Am Games,” responded Malinoski. “It’s very exciting that I get to compete and represent my country on our home soil! I can’t wait!”

The Pan Am Games Wakeboarding event will take place July 21-22 at the new Ontario Place West Channel watersports course in Toronto. The course will include a wakeboard rail for the first time ever in Pan Am Games wakeboarding competition and athletes will be towed behind the Super Air Nautique G23, the official wakeboarding tow boat of the Games.
To win the Pan Am Games nomination, Malinoski beat out Aaron Rathy, the 2009 WWA World Wakeboarding Champion and Christian Primrose, the 2013 Canadian Wakeboarding Champion. “Having only one male event in wakeboarding at the Games put a lot of pressure on the selection process, especially considering Canada has some of the best wakeboarders in the world,” said Michael Lieffers, Team Canada Wakeboarding Coach. “Rusty Malinoski, Aaron Rathy and Christian Primrose all trained and competed hard over the past 12 months, however, Rusty showed the greatest success with his past and recent podium finishes to win the selection.” “I have known Rusty for many years and I’m confident he can win gold for Canada at the Games.”
The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada made the official announcement today to nominate the athletes to represent Team Canada at the TORONTO 2015 Pan American Games.
