Para boarders score big

Canadians have grabbed third place in the Nations Cup as team members compete at Big White in the 2018 World Para Snowboard Finals.

Michelle Salt of Calgary also placed fourth in the Big White 2018 World Cup, cementing her third-place ranking in the women’s LL-1 banked slalom.

The Nations Cup rankings are calculated by adding up all the points from each nation’s athletes throughout the season across both discipines of para snowboardcross and banked slalom. For Canada, this represents the first time the country has podiumed in the Nations Cup.

“It feels amazing that all that hard work has paid off. To be honest, we were so focused on the process that it came as a surprise to me,” said head coach Mark Fawcett. “I believe that we at Canada Snowboard have provided these athletes with exceptional, challenging training environments to prepare them to be their best. That is our main focus. When we focus on that process, the results come to us.”
 
Salt also previously grabbed two bronze medals in her discipline at a pair of World Cup events in Landgraaf, Netherlands.
