In the three World Championships in which Geoff Carrington competed, he won the jumping event twice: in 1985 and 1989. In 1987 he earned the bronze medal.
Prior to the 1991 World Championships Geoff was injured in a freak ski jumping accident at Sea World in Queensland which almost cost him his life and left him a paraplegic. The water skiing community around the world contributed funds to help Geoff regain some of the qualities of life. Geoff was awarded the honor of O.A.M. in 1990 for his services to his country in the sport of water skiing.
I am pleased to announce the induction into the International Hall of Fame of one of the world's outstanding jumpers: Geoff Carrington.
