World Snowboarding Championships!


This past week has been so intense! Filled with lots of good experiences, nerves, happiness, friends, family, snowboarding, speed issues, flat landings, media/press, wind, Tv interviews, flat light, bluebird, parties, concerts, great dinners, invited to the City Hall and awesome riding.

I was so happy when I got the message only one day before the championships started, that I was given a wild card and my name was on the startlist!! Wohoo. After a year out because of knee injury I couldn't enter any of the qualifying competitions which meant that I probably had to watch the world championships in my hometown from the sideline! But not!!!:)

The course was pretty big and I struggled with the speed during the training, but it was so fun to be riding with my friends again in a big competition. It was also good to experience that I was able to cope with my nerves and have fun even after being out of the scene for so long! If I could change one thing it would be the timing of the WSC, cause this was my second competition in over a year and of course I wish I was more ready to charge it and do better tricks, but considering my injury and how little I have been riding in advance, Im proud to land a clean run in this big course!

I played it a little safe but manage to advance into semi finals together with two other norwegian girls Dina and Kjersti! The day of semifinals was amazing. Bluebird and perfect conditions! I landed a ok run, but fell on my bs 540 in my last run so no finals. Still happy to be back on track!

Thanks OSLO and WSC for a great event!!!
