The snowboarding versatility of the 26-year-old was clearly on display on day two of the World Championships in Stoneham, Canada, where she overlooked, the halfpipe, to chase a medal in slopestyle.
She earned her first World Championship medal, a bronze, by finishing behind the United States’ Spencer O’Brien, who won gold in her first World Championship, while Switzerland’s Sina Candrian was third.
It was the first time since 2005 that Bright had competed at a World Championships.
Her World Championship medal performance was just one week after she competed in slopestyle for the first time in some years, where at Copper Mountain, USA, where she finished in 55th place in a field of 59 competitors.
At the same Copper Mountain World Cup event, Bright showed her best skills in the half pipe, by winning the final in a field featuring all of the world’s best riders.
