|Coach Jamie and myself waiting|
After a short practise that consisted of only two runs it was straight into the event. The organisers rattled through the first runs. I was not very pleased with my first run as I had a bit of a bad landing on my first hit. The first hit was over vert which meant it spat you into the middle of the pipe. It was difficult to deal with.
|Dropping for my second run|
A lot of other people felt under scored. And I also agreed with them. Some people were getting really high scores for not such good/technical runs and other with better runs were getting a lot less coming in. It was strange as it's difficult to know what to do if you just aren't getting the scores you deserve.
My second run went a lot better. It was probably the best run I had done all season. I was really focused for this event. I wanted a good result and I felt like I had a good chance to do well. When my score came through I was so disappointed. It was the lowest score I had all season and I was gutted. I didn't want to wait around and watch the others but I felt I had to show some support for the other guys because if it was me I would want them to do the same.
|Can you find me?|
The mens final was cancelled due to the weather. And girls only managed to do 1 run qualification. It was really difficult conditions all day and I was just happy to have landed my run.
When I got back to the hotel I got some really good news. Even though I didn't get the score I wanted I still managed to end up in 20th place over all. Which is another Olympic qualification criteria I hit. It takes a lot of pressure off knowing that I have three top 20's now. It lets me know that all the hard work is paying off.
