Ladies you make us proud! Izzy Atkin has carved herself a slice of British Olympic history by claiming a bronze medal in the ladies’ ski slopestyle and becomes the first British freestyle skier to stand on the Olympic podium. Rowan Cheshire managed her PyeongChang competition extremely well and and scored another top 10 for the GB Team in the ladies’ ski halfpipe.
Freestyle skier James Woods went close to earning a place on the Olympic podium, finishing fourth in today’s men’s slopestyle. Woods left nothing in the tank, going big on all three runs in the final and went close to earning a place on the Olympic podium, finishing fourth in today’s men’s slopestyle.
Do not miss Jamie Nicholls, Rowan Coultas & Billy Morgan in Olympic action tonight in snowboard big air from 12:30am.
Can't believe I have an Olympic medal🥉😛 Congrats to all the ladies today, it was an awesome comp to be a part of! And thank you to all my friends, family, coaches, and sponsors who supported my journey. Now I'm excited to cheer on @teamgb for the rest of the games 😄 #WeAreTheGreat #pyeongchang2018 @gbparkandpipe @uk_sport
Yo! Thanks for all of the support crew – it was an incredible day of shredding all round @olympics ! I went all in for the ‘W’ and couldn’t not be more proud of myself – 3 runs in finals that I am so stoked on despite tiny, tiny wobbles which cost me the event. Came away with a couple of stitches and a sore back but am bursting with pride thanks to each and every shredder, freeskiers & snowboarders, who ride their heart out and leave it all out there on the mountain – respect! Even if you didn’t get to shred here, big ups, let’s keep on rocking and thank you for letting me part of this epic journey! 💪👊
The boys at the Big Air practice.
Murray put down 2 solid runs, just missing qualification, finishing 14th overall.
After an incredible journey Rowan Cheshire finished 7th in the women’s Olympic ski halfpipe finals.
Big thumbs up! Really happy to put down a run today in the olympic finals and to come away with 7th place! Thank you to the great support team we have behind us, the support from the @tnluk , my sponsors and every one back home! Big big shout to the best coach in the world @jamie_matthew15 as well, you da bestest!!
Andrew Musgrave has had an up-and-down Games so far and he will be looking to make the pendulum swing in the right direction again when he teams with Andrew Young in tomorrow’s team sprint.
While Woods came through qualifying in eighth position to make the final, Tyler Harding was not so lucky. Making his Olympic debut, the 21-year-old took on the course and put together solid rails sections but twice crashed out on the jumps, finishing in 29th overall.
First photo pretty much summed up my runs, but dang I got to drop into my first Olympics yesterday! Real bummed I couldn’t put down a run (hyped on locking that 4 prets 4 tho), but it’s just how it goes sometimes. Just wanna say a huge thanks to the @teamgb Physio’s & @alisonphysio for getting me to the top of that course yesterday. Had about 2 hours practice this week tryna fight past a lot of pain with a torn meniscus, so I wouldn’t have made it up there without them! A seriously big thanks to y’all for supporting and watching me do what I do too. Was an honour to ski with 29 of the best yesterday and it just motivates me more for the next one ❤️
Katie (71.80) also put in a fantastic performance to not only qualify for her second Olympic final, but to finish seventh and match her performance from Sochi.
Although it’s not the result I wanted today, I am so proud to be that girl from Sheffield who grew up skiing on dryslope, loving every second of it. Thank you everyone for your support as always, and to the amazing support team at @gbparkandpipe @jamie_matthew15 . Thank you especially @patsharples for putting up with me for the last 13 years. Now, I need to rest my ankle…
Aimee couldn’t stick her double underflip in Olympic Big Air qualifiers, which she had been doing in practice but still mixed it with the best of them.
