    They all did well. All made the finals which is agood outcome.

    Now we are onto the US selections in Winter Park. Absolutely stoked for Jakara Anthony.:woohoo::woohoo::woohoo: First in a pretty tough field. Some of those girls have done well in wold cup events. She came 15th in qualifying so only just made the finals.

    Next best Aussie as Claudia Gueli in 13th. Then Sophie Ash and Roanna Humpries just outside the top 16.

    In the mens Rohan Chapman Davies came 3rd. May have been a bit unlucky because he qualified 1sr and came 1st in the 1st final. Shows what a cutthroat sport it is. 3rs is still a pretty good result in a tough field.

    James Matheson qualified 10th, came 6th in the first final and 5th in the 2nd final.

    Cooper Woods and Will Martin came 19th and 20th respectively separated by .01.

    So over all a great day for the Aussies. More to come after a training day tomorrow.

    Is that a 3rd for Cooper? Good to see some of the younger familiar names amongst them.

    Andi is really nice kid. We know her well.

    My skier is just working on adding a D Spin to her run. Landing most of them, She is getting big scores with a twister spread and a Big back X. I think the D spin will come out at the next comp. Fingers crossed

    The Aussie kids are really doing well. They are all pushing it and each other

    Awesome!! Congrats Matt. You know you're skiing well when you can get in front of Kingsbury.

    My thoughts exactly. A win indeed but up against The King ..... HUGE :)

    Lots of good camaraderie on the bump tour.

    I've seen all the top Canadian mogul skiers on course because the national team uses Apex as their training base in early season. Watching guys like Kingsbury and Bilodeau live is just jaw dropping, their speed and smoothness are unbelievable.

    So pleased for Matt.

    Considering he did not ski this season in Aus this is a stunning result. It would have been nice to have seen him ski against the top guys last season in Aus but it was not to be.

    There were a few other Aussies competing. Some it was their first WC event some their first season competing at that level. So just good that they there.
