It feels good to be back on the podium and hopefully I can just keep progressing from here, Brita Sigourney
Aspen, Colo (PRWEB) January 22, 2015
Amidst the falling snow Monster Energy’s Brita Sigourney takes bronze with a score of 78.66 in Women’s Ski SuperPipe tonight at X Games Aspen 2015. The win for Sigourney makes an incredible third X Games medal with a silver in 2011 and bronze in 2012.
After missing the podium for two years, Sigourney came into this X Games with the calm and confidence to take a medal. During her run she carried her speed and amplitude, boosting as high as 14 feet 6 inches. Her amazing run included a straight-air mute grab into an Alley-Oop Japan, into a 900, into an Alley-Opp 540, into a left 540, and finally a right cork 720.
When asked what it was like out there tonight, Brita commented, “It was really fun and probably the least nervous I have ever been dropping into an X Games competition, which I think kind of paid off. I didn’t have the leg jitters.” “It feels good to be back on the podium and hopefully I can just keep progressing from here.”
As the women in SuperPipe continue to progress, it reminds us of the beloved Sarah Burke and how she progressed Women’s Ski SuperPipe to where it is today.
