Following Samantha Wells second placing in yesterday’s first World Cup event of the double header weekend, Scott could not contain her excitement when she realised she had secured the silver at the 2002 Olympic resort.
Today’s women’s event was taken out by China’s Xin Zhang who finished with a score of 99.40, just 2.11 points clear of Scott with Ashley Caldwell of the United States third.
“I feel fantastic; I’m just soaking it up,” Scott said, shortly after her Super Final run.
“The atmosphere is so awesome here in Deer Valley,” she added.
Scott was thrilled with her performance, and said she felt relaxed leading up to her final jump.
“I just maintained my focus and went out and had fun, not thinking about things too much,” Scott said.
Scott progressed to the Super Final after finishing fourth in qualifying, and again in her first final run.
Scott was thrilled with her final jump and said once she landed it, there was then a nervous wait.
“I just had my fingers and toes crossed; I knew it was close and when I realised I was second, it was just a great feeling,” she said.
Renee McElduff and Samantha Wells finished 15th and 22nd respectively in qualifying today, to miss out on a place in today’s final
In the Men’s event, David Morris finished 24th in qualifying to miss out on a place in the finals.
