Deena Brush Mapple (born Deena Brush November 3, 1962) is a retired American competitive water skier. She is considered by many[who?] to be the greatest female water skier of her generation[citation needed]. Her Grand Slam Victory in 1987 - overall wins in the World Championships, U.S. Nationals, U.S. Masters and the Pro Tour - made her one of two athletes to ever accomplish the feat. She remains the only American to earn membership to the United States Waterskiing Team seven consecutive times.[1]


In 1987, Brush married Andy Mapple, who would eventually be a six-time world water skiing champion,[2] and a 14 time Masters Slalom Champion himself. After the marriage, she variously became referred to as Deanna Brush Mapple, Deanna Brush-Mapple and Deanna Mapple.
