OWIA Ski Cross Head Coach was happy with the performance of the NSWIS athlete after the race.
“Arosa was a good race, the weather held off and we had good conditions.”
“Sami has been training really fast and was confident.”
She had a bit of trouble in the semi-final, getting held out of the first turn into the jump and had to give a little which cost her. “
“Sami came back really strong in the small final and had a clean run top to bottom.”
Also in action for Australia competing in the men’s event was Anton Grimus in 46th, and Doug Crawford in 54th.
