GB Park and Pipe's James 'Woodsy' Woods and Isabel Atkin have both claimed bronze medals in the Ski Slopestyle Finals at the Freestyle Ski Halfpipe World Championships in Sierra Nevada today.

In what has been a phenomenal season for GB Park and Pipe, Woodsy and Atkin showed again that they are among the best in the world, securing two podium places.

Woodsy was leading after putting down a fantastic second run of 90.40, but was overtaken in the final run by USA's McRae Williams who won gold and Gus Kenworthy who took silver.

In the women's Ski Slopestyle, Isabel Atkin pulled a fantastic third run out of the bag to climb up the rankings and take bronze behind French skier Tess Ledeux who took gold and Emma Dahlstrom from Sweden who claimed silver.

Isabel Atkin said after her third place: "I am stoked with how I skied in the conditions out here and glad to put down a solid run. It is a great end to the season and I am so happy to get bronze at my first World Champs! Thanks to Pat (Sharples) and everyone from GB Park and Pipe, all my sponsors and my family."

James 'Woodsy' Woods said after the final: "I am obviously happy to come away with a medal and really happy with my skiing. The contest wasn't easy and how it was run needs to be looked at, but I am pleased to secure a podium finish."

Pat Sharples congratulated the GB Park and Pipe team at the end of the Championships: "This is an amazing finish to a tough week of competition. I couldn't be more proud of the whole team. Everyone came out and killed it and rode to the very best of their abilities."
