Jaimee Bull started waterskiing at the age of four years with her family on Trout Lake in North Bay, Ontario and quickly became passionate about the sport. When she was five years old, she decided that I wanted to learn how to drop a ski and get out of the water on one ski, she was successful and began competing in slalom at the age of six years and did quite well.
At her first Ontario Provincial Championship, she was placed first in her age division which sparked her drive to excel in that sport and compete at a higher level. Since then she has been the Canadian National Champion on six different occasions and is the current U17 and U21 National record holder. She is currently ranked 1st in the World in U21 Slalom and 4th on the IWWF Dynamic List for Open Women. In 2017, she won both the Junior World Waterski Championships in San Bernardo, Chile and the Junior Masters Championship in Pine Mountain, Georgia. She was also placed 4th at the Swiss Pro Slalom and made her first Pro podium, placing 3rd at the Canadian Open. The biggest highlight of her career came in the fall of 2017 when she was placed 3rd at the Open World Championships in Paris, France.
In the 2018 season, she tied the U21 Women’s Slalom Canadian National Record with a score of 4 @ 10.75 m. At the Swiss Pro Slalom, she was again placed 4th. Her Professional season continued with a 5th place finish at the Canadian Open, a 4th place finish at the Malibu Open and 5th at the California Pro-Am. She won the Hilltop Pro-Am tournament in Seattle Washington for the 2nd consecutive year. She was also placed 2nd in both Elite and Open Nationals behind World Champion Whitney McClintock. Her season closed with her debut in the American Collegiate skiing scene where she won the Division 1 National Slalom Title helping the University of Louisiana place 2nd in the team event in a close battle with the ULM.
Her 2019 season kicked off with a 4th place finish at the Swiss Pro Slalom followed by another 4th place at the Open Masters. At her last pro competition, the Lake 38 Pro-Am, she tied the score for third place but due to seeding she finished with another 4th place finish. The top three ranked Women in the World finished ahead of her in all three pro events. Her most recent accomplishment was placing first in the U21 World Waterski Championships. In the preliminary round, she ran 5 buoys @ 10.75m setting a new pending World Championship Record and a U21 National Record.
Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with Jaimee Bull an exceptionally talented, World Champion, Masters Champion U21, World Record Holder 2x U21 World Champion and Junior World Champion Canadian National Waterski Team, here she talks about her fitness routine, her diet, and her success story.
The biggest highlight of your career came in winning the Open World Championships in Groveland, Florida on October 16th 2021. Tell us more about this exceptional achievement?
In 2017, I placed third at the Open World Championships as a 17 year old. From that day, I wanted to win an Open World Title. This season, the Open World Championships took place in Groveland, Florida at Jack Travers Ski School, my main training site away from home. So, at the beginning of this year, winning Worlds became a very serious goal of mine. I was fortunate to run 2 at 41 off in the finals of the World Championships, setting a World Championship Tournament Record and putting serious pressure on the remaining three competitors, all of whom are previous World Champions. Fortunately, none of the ladies were able to surpass my score and I was crowned the World Slalom Champion.
As mentioned, the event was held at Jack Travers Ski School in Groveland, Florida which is where I train, so it is considered my home site. My coaches and training partners were all standing with me when I won and being able to share the excitement and emotion of the win with them was absolutely amazing. Winning a World title anywhere is phenomenal but being able to win Worlds at my home training site where so many hours have been spent trying to become the best skier in the World was extra special. Sharing such a big moment with the Travers Family who are the owners of the site and waterski school, and who have taken me in like family, is a feeling I will never forget.
