Sylvie Hulsemann

Honored in 

In 1961 Sylvie Hulsemann became the second European woman to win the World Overall Title, earning, in the process, a medal in each of the three events: a gold medal in tricks, a silver medal in jumping, and a bronze medal in slalom.


Sylvie competed in in 8 world championships over 18 years (1959,1961,1963,1965,1967,1971,1975,1977), unsucessfully defending her title in Vichy in 1963, finishing 4th overall, and returning to take a silver medal in tricks in 1965 at Surfers Paradise. She competed in Europe, and was the European Women's Overall champion three times between 1960 and 1975.


I am pleased to announce the induction into the International Hall of Fame of a woman who almost single-handedly put Luxembourg on the water skiing map: Sylvie Hulsemann.
