Current Canadian Slalom Record co-holder, Jason McClintock was practically born into the sport, learning to ski at just 18 months old at his parent’s water ski school. At just 5 years old Jason competed in his first tournament, and by the time he was 8 years old he had competed in his first Canadian Nationals. He became a member of the National team in 2004 at the age of 17. Since then Jason has won many titles, including 3 Pan American Championship titles, 5 Pan American Games titles, 2 Pan Am Festival titles, and over 20 Canadian National 1st place titles. His most recent win was 1st place in Tricks at the Pan American Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Having previously been a three-event skier, Jason retired from jumping after a nasty jump crash in March of 2007. This crash left him with a shattered left patella and a dislocated right subtalar joint. But this didn’t stop him completely; after a year off Jason entered the competitive field again focusing on his two most loved events – slalom and trick. In addition to his impressive water ski skills, Jason graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Sports and Fitness and also coaches at McClintock’s Ski School in Cambridge, Ontario, during the summer.
Jason is an incredible water skier with an inspiring passion for the sport. His future hopes are to break the Canadian National slalom and trick records and help take Canada to victory at the 2015 Toronto Pan American Games!
