CARMICHAEL (CBS13) – A Carmichael 15-year-old is headed to Italy to compete against some of the best water skiers in the world.
Connor Aguilar-Poggetto made the US Team during a competition in Elk Grove last month.
Connor uses a wheelchair and will compete in the World Disabled Water Ski Championships next summer.
He knows a lot of tricks but there’s one he really wants to master.
“You go up off the wake and you flip backwards. The front of the board has to go over your head,” explained Connor.
Connor’s been water skiing since he was six.
