IWWF Wakeboard Cable Rider of the Decade

April 2021

 

The IWWF (International Waterski and Wakeboarden Federation) awarded Julia Rick as „Female Wakeboard Cable Rider Of The Decade (2010-2019)”. This award is a special accomplishment for Julia. It rewards her various victories throughout the years and her function as female role model.

Her greatest victories are: Becoming 3x IWWF World Champion (2019,2016,2012) and winning 4x the IWWF World Cup (2015,2017,2018 (2x)).

 

 

More info on the IWWF website: https://iwwf.sport/iwwf-announces-athletes-of-the-decade-%C2%BC- century/?fbclid=IwAR1bJq27niSJd_VZmANmtJDaHOLSGFZNJtaz9kG3odeNfXUf6rDMmilZOwY

 

 

Official IWWF press release:

„Julia has dominated Cable Wakeboarding throughout this decade, she has become an exceptional role model for young girls across our sport and actively encourages girls to push themselves within our sport.
Julia entered her first ever World Championships in 2012 in the Junior Ladies category and absolutely smashed it, becoming the Junior Ladies World Champion, she then became a Professional Wakeboarder in 2013 after giving up Football, and has since won both 2016 & 2018 Open Ladies World Championships. She holds 3 x World Championship titles during the decade.

On winning the latest 2018 World Championships in Argentina Julia said:

How do you rate this victory vs other victories?

It definitely is an important victory because the IWWF Worlds only takes place every two years. Furthermore, I became IWWF World Champion for the 3rd time (2012 Junior, 2016 & 18 Open ladies)!
Anything you want to say to whoever is out there dreaming with being cable wakeboarding world champion?

I think the most important thing is that you really love what you do and to be passionate about it! If you really want something and have fun doing it, you will reach your goals.

We cannot wait to see what the next decade brings for Julia, and love seeing all of her social media posts pushing our sport more and more.
Congratulations Julia - this is such a well-deserved award.“

Julia Rick wins Munich MASH 2019

2nd of July, Munich, Germany

This weekend I won the famous „Munich MASH“ event 2019! For the first time ever, women participated in their own competition in front of a huge crowd of more than 10.000 spectators.
More than 80,000 people came into the Munich Olympic Park from 28.-30.06. to watch three different kinds of Action sports (BMX, Skate and Wakeboarding).
"She came to win – and she certainly didn’t disappoint. Germany‘s Julia Rick won the first Wakeboard Park Women‘s Contest at the Olympic Park in front of 10,000 fans. Things remained exciting right up until the end, with America’s Anna Nikstad leading the way in the standings until Rick’s final run. The nine-time world champion rose to the challenge and threw down a Toeside Backside 720 on the big kicker, combining this banger trick with a clean run over the other obstacles to push Anna Nikstad off top spot. “I am so happy to have won here. The contest here is really special and the park is technical and challenging to ride,” commented the 26 year-old. Third spot went to Maryh Rougier (France).“
