Pending Overall World Record

Pretty cool to see that @Sledgehammer set a new pending overall world record this week. It’s pretty wild to think about the level of athleticism required to excel in all three events like Adam does.

    It is amazing that he is able to compete in all 3 events at such a high level.

    Certainly one of the best or even the best 3 events skier of all time!

    Who else can post such excellent scores in all 3 events?
    How's Regina in tricks?
    Deena Mapple was quite a 3 events skier too! Sammy,Carl...?

    Very hard/impossible to compare skiers from different eras. ...Best to just say, congrats World Champ! and Congrats World Record Holder!

    I watched, from the boat, Adam rip 10.25 while training for the Masters. He was so pumped. It was pretty cool to watch. Cool dude.

    On the women's side there are some very strong overall skiers. Regina's trick ranking on USA Waterski is 8455 and her jump average is 177. In addition Whitney and Natalia are very strong overall skiers.

    Patrice was obviously awesome as was Jaret Llewelyn.

    One of the most impressive accomplishments I've ever heard of. Each alone is clearly impossible. All three is impossible cubed...

    @Than_Bogan Do we need higher scrutiny for these performances?

    Silly reference to a different discussion. Adam's post while I was typing gives a wrong message.

    @Sledgehammer Absolutely not questioning your incredible performance. Congratulations! You ARE the best in the world.

    @Luzz I agree. I've watched @Sledgehammer ski multiple times and have thought the same thing. As impressed as I am with great one/two event skiers, great overall skiers are incredible. Fantastic skiing!!
