Sasha through to wakeboard final
Defending women's wakeboard champion Sasha Christian fired a strong statement of intent in yesterday's wakeboard preliminaries by taking top spot in the qualifiers.
The 24-year-old dominated proceedings with a score of 59.45 over Thais Srirasin Khamklom (39.56) and Thidarat Limvuttegrijerat (30.00), and compatriot Gooi Jia Yi (35.67) in her qualifying group.
Gooi went on to compete in the last-chance qualifiers, where she scored 31.78 to secure a place in the final with Christian.
Meanwhile, Samuel Chua also made it to the final of the men's wakeboard event by placing second with a score of 63.34.
Teammate Joshua Tay finished last out of four competitors in the wakeboard preliminaries, after scoring 35.00 points.
He later pulled out of the last-chance qualifiers because of a suspected meniscus tear in his right knee.
