Regents International School prides itself on helping students achieve the greatest academic achievements but also encourages them to be ambitious, believing there are no limits to what can be achieved.  One Year 13 student is a prime example of this philosophy, having just become a jet-ski champion this summer at the age of 17.  She is a fearless competitor and has been a rising star in the jet-ski world since her first competition at just 9 years old.

Jet (her nickname of course!) is a Thai born student and has been a part of the Regents International community since early primary school level.  Her talent for the water sport was first put into practice when she was only 6 years old, when her father started to show her how to jet-ski.  Three years later, when she was only 9 years old, she took part in her first competition, although she didn’t realise it was a competition at the time.  She put in an impressive performance and walked away as the junior champion.

This summer she competed in the Jet Ski Pro Tour 2017 Thailand Championships and turned in an exciting performance to walk away as the youngest champion in the competition’s history.  Now Jet has her sights firmly set on becoming champion in the next league, Pro Am.  But her ambitions go even further – her ultimate goal is to become a World Jet Ski Champion, just like her father.

Local fans will be able to view Jet’s burgeoning talent when she competes in the upcoming King’s Cup Jet-Ski World Cup event in Pattaya in early December.
