    Prior wins snowboard World Cup event

    New Zealand snowboarder Christy Prior has won a World Cup event in the US as she works towards a place in the NZ team for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.


    New Zealand snowboarder Christy Prior is one step closer to realising her Olympic dream after winning a World Cup event in the United States.

    Prior won the Snowboard Slopestyle World Cup at Snowmass Resort in Colorado, with teammate Tiarn Collins also claiming bronze in the men's field.

    Prior made a fantastic clean run in her third and final attempt, scoring 77.06 points and beating Japan's Reira Iwabuchi (68.17 points) and Australia's Tess Coady (65.16).

    "I'm feeling quite overwhelmed, it's been such a rollercoaster ride and all quite surreal," said Prior, who has battled injury and cancelled competitions on her quest to meet the Winter Olympic qualifying criteria.
