Three Team BC snowboard athletes landed gold, silver and bronze between the men's and women's slopestyle event.
Finn Finestone (Whistler) will bring home a gold medal and Jadyn Chomlack (Pemberton) a bronze after laying down strong runs at the Canada Winter Games.
Finestone was sitting in third in the qualification runs with a score of 92.40. His second run in the finals scored 92.00 which ended up winning him the gold. Chomlack scored a 97.40 in his second qualifying run which put him at the top of the pack. It ended up being his first run in the finals, a score of 85.60, that landed him the bronze medal. Will Buffey (Ontario) scored a 88.20 to take silver.
"It was definitely tough in practice because I wasn't hitting the rails too good," said Finestone. "But I think the finals I brought it out and was pretty consistent. It feels amazing to win the gold medal. Super cool."
"I just didn't get a clean run at the beginning and I fell on my second run," said Chomlack. "It's just the way it goes sometimes. I'm still here having fun and I'm happy to be on the podium with Fin."
Juliette Pelchat (Whistler) was sitting at the top of the heap after the qualification runs with a score of 95.20. In the finals, her first run score of 66.20 stuck giving her the silver medal. Kianah Hyatt-Sikora (Alberta) won gold with a score of 67.80 and Kamilla Kozuback (Alberta) won bronze with a score of 53.80.
"My first run was pretty strong and my second run was my strongest run out of all," said Pelchat who started snowboarding at the age of three because her dad was a pro snowboarder. "My second jump is my favourite because I'm doing my hardest trick on that one. It's called the cab five switch 540."
