Title-winning Marcus now wants to reach next level
CAISTOR student Marcus Robinson is turning his attention to a winter of hard training after a successful 2012 water skiing season.
The 10-year-old has enjoyed a great year on the water skiing circuit, and now wants to build on his title-winning achievements.
Robinson, who lives in Somerby, near Brigg, and attends Caistor Primary School, was involved in four big competitions this year – all of which were European ranking events. The biggest was the British Nationals, which were held at Gosfield Lake in Essex.
In the Under-10s category, he achieved a personal best of 2¼ buoys at 52kph (32mph), which gave him first place in the slalom section.

Robinson won gold medals in the slalom, tricks and overall disciplines – so is now the Under-10s British national champion.
In Europe, he is ranked seventh in slalom and 11th in tricks.
Robinson lives with his mum Sarah, dad Martin, and has three older brothers – Daniel, Adam and George.
He started water skiing when he was aged just four on a fixed board. He then progressed onto two skis and did some knee-boarding.
At the end of summer 2010, he started to slalom (one ski).
He has done most of his skiing at Lound Water Ski Club near Retford. He also did a lot of training at Hazelwood's Ski World, near Lincoln, alongside some top coaches.
Robinson only recently learnt how to compete in the tricks discipline. This is done on a larger, single board and the skier goes a lot more slowly behind the boat allowing him to perform turns, jumps and toe holds.
He now hopes a winter of training will stand him in good stead for 2013.
