Michael Robertson Claims Second Top Ten Result

13 January 2003

Olympic Winter Institute moguls skier Michael Robertson has produced a second top ten finish in his debut season on the World Cup circuit, finishing ninth in Mont Tremblant, Quebec.

In a weekend of solid moguls performances, Adrian Costa had his best result for the season, finishing 13th, while Manuela Berchtold was the best of the OWI women, placing 15th.

Jane Sexton finished in 19th place, with Maria Despas 20th.

“Michael has made an excellent start to his career this season,” said OWI moguls coach Steve Desovich. “He skied right up to his training form today, and put in two very good jumps.”

“Adrian also skied very well and was unlucky to miss out on the final, and Manuela is continuing to improve her jumps and turns.”

Michael is in 13th place on the world rankings, but has one less result than the skiers above him on the standings, having missed the World Cup in Ruka just before Christmas.

Maria is the best of the women in 20th place on the standings.
