Uckfield water skier is third in European Ski Racing Championship

Uckfield waterskier Samantha Clark was third in the European Ski Racing Championship at the weekend.

Going into the championship Sam knew that Sabine Ortlieb from Austria would be very hard to beat but she secured two second places out of four races.

The best three of four results were totalled up and Sam finished in third place just behind Scottish skier Marissa Alonghi.

Sam, who has struggled all year with fitness and boat reliability is hoping to do well in the last two British National races to be held in Cardiff Bay in two weeks time.
