The OWIA Aerial Skiing program has been based in Ruka for their first on snow jumping camp of the season, and used the Europa Cup events as a warm up before the first World Cup event in Beijing, China, on December 19-20.
Scott recovered from a disappointing crash on day one of competition in the best possible way, recording victory in the second event after performing two of the three highest scoring jumps in the women’s event from the two days of competition.
“I had a bit of a tough run yesterday, so it was good to just put some nice jumps down," Scott said after the win.
Samantha Wells finished in 10th place on day one and 11th place on day two.
In his first event back since winning silver at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, David Morris missed out on victory on day two by an incredibly small margin of .21 points behind first place.
On the first day of competition, Morris finished in a respectable 8th place.
"I was still finding my feet and takeoff on the triple after only starting doing triple flips the day before. It was really anyone's guess as to what my jumps would turn out to be," Morris said.
Day two saw Morris jumping more aggressively and it paid off.
"I completed my first LdFF (lay-doublefull-full) triple-twisting triple-flip for the season on the second competition jump because I was feeling lucky, so i thought, hey why not, let's see what happens," Morris said.
Renee McElduff did not compete due to a small injury to her shin, and as a precaution in preparation for the World Cup in Beijing, took a few days off to recover ahead of the first World Cup of the season.
