Second Big Air World Cup podium of season for Freeski sensation
Kirsty Muir made it three bronze medal performances for Britain at the Copper Mountain World Cup with an excellent performance in the Freeski Big Air World Cup this evening.
Kirsty’s score of 173.75 was enough to secure third place behind Mathilde Gremaud and Tess Ledeux for her second World Cup podium of the season, and the fourth of her career to date. Even a heavy fall in Muir’s second jump, which looked like it could put her podium chances in jeopardy, wasn’t enough to prevent another superb result in what is fast becoming another exceptional season for British skiers and snowboarders on the FIS World Cup circuit.
Afterwards, Kirsty Said:
“I’m super excited with third here at Copper Mountain! Today was a difficult one; I had to push through some knee pain after crashing on my second run but I’m proud of myself for getting back up to put one down in my third run.
“I’m happy there’s a chance for some rest and recovery over Christmas, and I’m ready to keep sending in 2024!”
Freeski Coach Joe Tyler said:
“It’s been a pretty tough week through training for Kirsty here in Copper – so getting where we got to today with the tricks that she did we’re all super happy. She really went through the trenches on this one!”
