BAD GASTEIN, Austria (April 11) - Brooke Shaw (Bantam, CT) battled warm temps and soft snow Wednesday to take snowboardcross bronze for U.S. Snowboarding as the 2007 FIS Snowboard Junior World Championships opened in the Hohe Tauern National Park. Newly crowned U.S. champ Callan Chythlook-Sifsof (Girdwood, AK), competing with a fractured tailbone suffered three weeks ago at World Cup Finals, was eighth.
"Brooke is such a solid rider and she was up against some major girls in the final," said U.S. Snowboarding Program Manager Abbi Nyberg. "This is a girl who dominated both SBX and halfpipe on the Chevrolet Revolution Tour and qualified in every discipline for junior worlds; we're all really stoked with her riding this season and she still has two more events here."

Gold medalist was Helene Olafsen of Norway, who won World Cup Finals and took bronze at the senior World Championships in mid January, while silver went to Bulgarian Alexandra Jekova, a double SBX podium finisher on the 2007 World Cup. The men's victory went to Stian Sivertzen, also of Norway, with Austrian Markus Schairer in silver and Alex Pullin of Australia in bronze. Top U.S. men's rider was Abe Greenspan (Glenbrook, NV) with 20th.

Shaw piled up eight podium finishes, including three wins, on the Revolution Tour this season with a streak that started in January when she won both the opening SBX and halfpipe events at Copper Mountain, CO. She then went on to capture three more podiums in each discipline en route the both tour crowns.
