Holly Crawford 14th in US Grand Prix Event

20 December 2002

Holly Crawford has finished 14th in the Chevy Truck US Snowboard Grand Prix superpipe event in Park City, Utah.

The event – held in front of more than 8,000 people on the Salt Lake Olympic course – featured five of the six medallists from the 2002 Games.

Ben Bright was the best of the Australians in the men’s event, placing 23rd, with Andrew Burton in 34th and Marcus Wherle in 39th place.

Other Australian women's results saw Sascha Ryzy in 18th and 15 year-old Frances Miller in 29th.

Coach Ben Wordsworth said after the event "this was another great result from Holly Crawford, finishing 14th in a field of more than 40 women, and up against some of the best riders in the world".

"The competition was a good experience for the whole team as we have not competed at this level before, or in front of such a huge crowd."

"Now we head back to Mammoth to put in a solid few weeks of training leading up to the World Championships."

World Cup: In alpine events, Skiing Australia rider Johanna Shaw finished 25th in the parallel GS World Cup in Stoneham, Canada.

In the second event of the weekend, another PGS, she did not finish.
