CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Brooke O'Donnell is your average 12-year-old girl -- except when she's on the water.
"There aren't a lot of kids my age that do this, but that's OK," she said. "When I'm out on the water, it's awesome. It's just natural for me."
Brooke was the youngest competitor in the Upstate Watercraft Promotions national championship held Saturday at Magic Island, where more than 200 professional watercraft racers from across the country competed on the Kanawha River.
The tournament was part of the fourth annual SportsFest, hosted by the Charleston Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The O'Donnells traveled from Woodstock, Ga., to cheer on Brooke, who received her third national title on Saturday for her freestyle Jet Ski tricks.
Although she was the only one to compete in her division in Charleston's Governor's Cup, Brooke said the title still means a lot to her.
"It's not all about winning, it's really fun," she said. "I like having competition, but today I still got to show off some of my favorite tricks -- like doing a handstand while riding. That's my favorite."
Saturday's SportsFest activities included an extreme beach volleyball competition and a firefighter combat challenge.
