James ‘Woodsy’ Woods claims X Games Norway bronze, back injury for Kate Ormerod
James ‘Woodsy’ Woods claimed his second X Games medal of the season, taking bronze in last night’s X Games Slopestyle in Norway. Another huge feat for the GB Park and Pipe skier.
He will now go on to compete in the Big Air qualifiers, with finals taking place on Saturday.
The GB Park and Pipe snowboarders have been in action at the Freestyle Ski and Snowboard Championships in Sierra Nevada. In the men’s Snowboard Slopestyle competition, Billy Morgan finished in a solid 7th place, progressing through to tomorrow’s finals. Matt McCormick finished in 14th place with Jamie Nicholls in 16th and Rowan Coultas in 17th place. After sustaining a back injury in training, Katie Ormerod wasn’t able to compete in Slopestyle qualification and will be out of action for around six weeks. Unfortunately Aimee Fuller had a fall on her second run, meaning she finished 14th overall and didn’t go through to finals.
Action from the Freestyle Ski and Snowboard World Championships can be seen on the BBC red button and website as well as on Eurosport.
