Aspen, CO (PRWEB) January 26, 2014
Monster Energy teammates Silje Norendal and Jamie Anderson have once again taken the gold and silver in an exciting Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle event at X Games Aspen 2014 where they repeated their victory from last year at X Games Tignes. Anderson held the top spot with her first run until the end when Norendal beat her out on her last run in a very close competition to claim her second straight gold in Slopestyle with a score of 96 to Anderson’s 95.66.
The competition was really stiff in today’s final where all eight contestants were allowed three runs with their best score counting. Anderson and Nordendal went huge and pulled really technical tricks to include Nordendal’s 720 off her toes into a backside 540 and finishing it off with a flawless switch backside 540 that earned her the top spot on her last run.
Anderson lead from the start through to the end with her usual tech prowess where she nailed a creative run stomping a switchback 540 to a frontside 720 into a smooth backside 540 to a cab 720.
“I am actually really happy,” said Anderson. "I’ve never done that run before.”
Nordendal, 20 of Norway, will head to Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Olympics in a few weeks where Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle will make its official debut, along with teammate Anderson and all other six contestants that competed today.
