World champion water-skier Sarah Teelow has died following a fall during a high-speed race on Australia’s Hawkesbury River.

The 20-year-old came off her skis shortly after the start of the Bridge to Bridge Water Ski Classic near Sydney on Sunday.

She suffered serious spinal and head injuries and after died in hospital.

Teelow won the Formula 2 category at the World Waterski Racing Championships in Spain in September.

Ski Racing Australia drew her as “one of the sport’s most accomplished young competitors”. “The ski racing fraternity is deeply saddened by Sarah’s passing and extends its condolences to her family,”

Teelow, from Wellington, was the daughter of two-time world water-ski champion Tania Teelow.

Local media say New South Wales police are enquiring how she came off her skis.

Skiers can reach speeds of more than 130km/h (80 mph) in the 112km (70 miles) Bridge to Bridge course.
