British snowboard star Katie Ormerod took third place in today's Slopestyle finals at the 2020 Laax Open in Switzerland.
It was Ormerod's first competition since returning from injury and she had already posted online that she was "Super happy to qualify into Friday's finals …Thanks Laax for creating such an epic and fun course!"
Julia Marino from the US won the competition with Japan's Reira Iwabuchi taking second place.
Marino had set the bar high with an incredible first run including a Backside 900 Melon, a Cab Double Underflip Mute and a Frontside 720 Mute on the kicker line which earned her 81,30 points. None of the other finalists was able to get close to her score.
"The weather played along another day putting smiles on all faces while witnessing today's Snowboard action in the innovative course for the highly anticipated Slopestyle finals in LAAX," a Laax spokesperson commented.
