Henshaw through to slopestyle finals in Quebec
10 February 2017
SKI SLOPESTYLE: Just two weeks after claiming his third World Cup medal of his career, Russ Henshaw has qualified for another slopestyle skiing final this morning in Quebec City, Canada.
His podium finish in Seiser Alm, Italy, which earned him a bronze medal, marked a big success in his return from repeat injuries over the last four years.
Now, after illness kept him out of competition in Mammoth, USA, the Australian has shown he knows how to bounce back well, delivering an 84.66 in his 2nd run to qualify for the 16-man final out of heat 2.
The fourth World Cup course of the season has been designed to highlight the best of the extraordinary skills shown by some of the best skiers in the world.
Three kickers in a row, each gradually building in size, open the run with skiers then taking on three simultaneous rail sections, offering many different trick options for riders to showcase their best tricks.
Henshaw will be back on the course for the finals on Monday morning at 4am (AEDT) in his bid for more silverware in 2017.
