FROM COMPETITION— FIND NEW VENTURES IN THEIR HOMELAND
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 26, 2002
ORLANDO, FL – March 1, 2002 Correct Craft announces the retirement of Bruce and Toni Neville from professional competitive waterskiing. Correct Craft is proud of its long association with both of these world-class athletes.
Bruce, a veteran and specialist of waterski jumping, began skiing at the age of 5 and first competed at the age of ten. The Australian Men Jump Record Holder is a 3-time World Record Holder; 1995 World Jump Champion; 9-time Australian/Moomba Masters Champion; and a list of championship titles from around the globe too numerous to list here.
Toni Neville, the first female to ever jump over 200 feet, is also a 4-time World Women Jump Record Holder; Co-Holder of the World Women Ski Fly Record; 1997 Co-World Women Slalom Record Holder; 1999 World Women Jump Record Holder; Current Masters Women Slalom Champion, and also has, world-wide titles too numerous to show here. When asked if she would defend her Masters Slalom title, Toni said, ''I haven't decided just yet. In lieu of the new Correct Craft/GM Vortec Engine relationship combined with the largest purse in waterskiing history, it is very tempting. I'll just have to see how my training progresses. After all, the Masters is the greatest waterski tournament in the world. You need only to travel worldwide, as I have, to all the other tournaments to see why the Masters is unique and indeed very special.''
''Bruce and Toni are two of the finest athletes, and more importantly human beings, that we have ever had the privilege to do business with,'' said Larry Meddock, vice president of marketing for Correct Craft. The two Australian natives will be sorely missed on the world-class competition circuit. Both are extremely popular throughout Australia due to their long and successful careers in competitive waterskiing not only in their homeland, but also throughout the world while representing Australia.
Correct Craft, however, is also pleased to announce the appointment of Bruce and Toni Neville to guide Correct Craft in its quest to develop a production facility in their native country—Australia. They have both been associated with the Nautiques by Correct Craft for the past ten years and have valuable knowledge and experience with the product. This new venture will give Bruce and Toni, as a team, an opportunity to continue their commitment to the watersports industry.
''We are excited about the opportunities Correct Craft has afforded us,'' Neville stated, ''not only as athletes, but as their representatives to help establish a manufacturing resource in Australia.'' ''This will also give us a chance to return to our homeland, while at the same time continue our longstanding relationship with Correct Craft,'' he continued.
Correct Craft, Inc., manufacturer of world-renowned Nautiques ® is the oldest family-owned and operated boat manufacturer in the world, known for their leadership in pioneering technology and innovative designs for over 77 years.
