Ski Limited first Saly is too good for the field in China

Cambodia’s Ou Moeut Saly had a consistent run in an open competition in China last week, zooming ahead of a competitive field in the Ski Limited to take first place, while finishing third and fifth in the Ski Grand Prix.

Saly won jet ski gold in the Ski Modified and a bronze in the 1100 Runabout Stock class at the Asian Games in Indonesia two months ago.

The 27-year-old Saly’s GP ratings would have been much higher but for the officials docking a lap from his score for what was an ambiguous call.

Slamming the penalty as overreaction, Saly’s Australian coach Chris Talakouras clearly felt Sally unfairly lost what would have been an overall second place.

While Saly remained unchallenged all the way in the Ski Limited, he slipped down after a strong start in the GP after a bright Saturday start when he finished first and second in the SKI GP Moto 1 and Moto 2.

His Asian Games team-mate Mustan Min, mean-while, could only finish fifth and fourth.
