Aussie Bright wins first world cup season opener

 

SAAS-FEE, Switzerland Halfpipers dropped into their first World Cup competition of the season Thursday and none other than Australian Torah Bright taking the win in Switzerland.

"I was so glad that we had a good weather today, it’s much more fun then. I had to get used to the pipe first, but then I could demonstrate some good runs," Bright said.

With clean runs in the superpipe, Kokubo found himself surprised to be on top of the podium.

"I didn’t expect to win here against the strong international riders. But it’s a great feeling and an honour definitely," Kokubo said.

Xuetong Cai of China finished second for the women, followed by Sophie Rodriguez of France in third.

"I felt really good today. Unfortunately some of my hits were too short, but I’ll keep on practicing and hope to perform a great run at the Olympics in a couple of months," Cai said.
