Katie Ormerod Grains Fourth Straight World Cup Podium and Retains World Cup Lead

Katie Ormerod reached her fourth-straight slopestyle podium of the season in the Calgary Snow Rodeo.

Ormerod was able to stomp her signature double wildcat on the final hit of her second run for a score of 68.71 which secured a podium finish.

The Yorkshire born star finished behind PyeongChang silver medallist Laurie Blouin (1st) and Silje Norendal of Norway who was returning from injury (2nd).

My🥉place run from Calgary! Definitely the best feeling double wildcat I’ve done! Fun times!! ✨

Katie now has 2600 FIS points with just one slopestyle World Cup left to go in the season but Calgary winner Blouin has closed the gap to just 400 points, with the Canadian amassing 2200 points this season so far.

The race for the Crystal Globe will therefore go down to the final event in Spindleruv Mlyn (CZE) next month where Katie can guarantee the Crystal Globe win with a result of silver or gold or to simply better the score of Blouin on the day.
