MonaVie EMV Wakeboarder Wins IWSF World Cup
MonaVie EMV professional wakeboarder Raimi Merritt beat out the world's top women riders to win gold at the International Water Ski Federation Wakeboard World Cup Championship in Liuzhou, China.
Despite the challenging water conditions of the Liu River, the pressure of 50,000 spectators, and competition that featured two former world champions, the 16-year-old Merritt performed two flawless passes to end the meet and take home the Wakeboard World Cup title.
"Getting first place was amazing," Merritt said. "I knew what I needed to do to get the gold, so I went out there and tried my best and pulled it together."
Merritt's win in China marks her third World Cup title since turning pro in 2007. For more information about Merritt, visit www.raimimerritt.com.
