ANNA takes gold !
those prayers must have worked last night, because today Ms Anna Segal just wrote herself into the history books, by winning GOLD in slopestyle at the FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships !
it was soooooo exciting !
Anna slid into top place with her first run.... and there she stayed ! despite the best efforts by the best female skiers in the world, Anna took gold for Australia ! and she was pretty stoked with this extra special win......
"today wasn't about money or sponsors or points - today was about skiing for my country..." Anna told CwS.
and that is an important point - because slopestyle is being seriously considered for inclusion into the next Olympic Games - roll on 2014 !
Annas’s run was ......... a lipslide on the down rail, a blind 270 out of the a- frame, a disaster on the flat down box and 180 over the bonk feature. On the jumps she did a switch 540 into a huge 720 mute grab and finished off with her patented flat- spin 360.
