Andri - “ After I got injured in December and I missed out two slopestyle worldcups, I thought my goal winning the overall worldcup was gone!! I still believed that I could win it! I came back even stronger and ended up on the podium on EVERY worldcup!! Especially after the defeat at the olympics, this victory felt even better! Wow.. 2nd time overall worlcup champion!-
In the ladies, Jennie-Lee Burmansson (SWE) who is 15 years of age and doing her first FIS slopestyle season took the Crystal Globe for the first time! The future looks bright. Congratulations!
