Snowboarding FIS Freestyle World Championships 2021



Recommended Posts

Pretty bad competition on the men’s side. They really needed a semi finals to narrow down the men’s field to 12 before the finals (allowing them to do three runs). Lots of athletes seemed to have problems with the snow conditions. Kleveland had a commanding performance, either of his runs would have won by a large margins.

 

The women’s event started rough but it ultimately ended up being pretty okay. Anderson was oh so close to winning her first (and way overdue) world championship title until Sadowski-Synnott finally lived up to her potential on the very last run of the day.

 

The course is pretty good, minus the snow being too soft. It feels like an X Games course from a couple years ago, so from back when all the jumps were just standard kickers. Hopefully the men’s ski slopestyle contest (which is mercifully a three run contest) will show us the true potential of this course.

Pretty underwhelming final wasn't it? :yikes: 

 

Falls left and right, a course that looked as default as it can get, not really much tension in terms of medal winners...

Lol ... after stating multiple times in the past that you find freestyle snowboarding boring and don’t really watch it, you now try to act like some kind of expert. :lol:

Might explain your horrible take about the medal winners. After reading many of your past comments it doesn’t surprise me though that the best and third best athletes from qualification not winning a medal in men’s slopestyle didn’t surprise. After all you are the best when it comes to making predictions AFTER the competition is over. I think there might have never been a result that you didn’t expect ...

 

You should either stick to the sports you have a clue about or inform yourself next time before posting unsubstantiated nonsense. Thanks!

Amazing development for Snowboard Germany overall. At this point Germany is probably the best European nation when it comes to freestyle snowboarding. Without Ettel‘s injury, Germany probably would have had top 10 finishes in all 4 slopestyle/halfpipe Events. The last time Germany had at least one top 10 finish in any of those events was in 2005.

Both Hablützel and Josey disgustingly overscored. Looks like Höflich getting robbed. I guess if you aren’t from one of the traditional nations you have to be superior beyond belief to even have a chance to win a medal.

I can’t believe what I am seeing, both Blackwell and Josey insanely overscored by the two American judges. They are trying too hard to push one of their athletes on the podium. Thank god we will have different judges at the Olympics. The cheating in snowboarding might be even more blatant than in figure skating.

I can’t believe how disgusting the judges in Aspen are. Yesterday Höflich got fucked by the Austrian and Swiss judge and today Gütl (scored 83.50) got 76 by the Swiss judge (by far his lowest score), while Vicktor scored 77.75 and got 75 by the two Swiss judges (clearly his lowest scores). Obviously some influential people in Switzerland/Austria have a problem with Germany becoming good in freestyle snowboarding. I hope that Snowboard Germany won’t just remain silent. If there is no other way, then the German judges should underscore Austrian/Swiss athletes in the future just out of principle.

 

Edit: Annika Morgan missed the big air final by one place and of course in both her runs her two worst scores came from the two Swiss judges. Rolling the dice to determine the results would be more fair than this travesty, I hope that someone will be hold accountable and that we will have professional judges at the Olympics.
