Cassie Sharpe just misses trip to the podium

Comox athlete finishes fourth in halfpipe at Mammoth Grand Prix in California

Record Staff

Missed it by that much.

Cassie Sharpe Cassie Sharpe of Comox was the lone Canadian in the women’s halfpipe event at the Mammoth Grand Prix, Feb. 6 in California. She was 0.80 points away from the podium after finishing in fourth place with an 81.80.

American Maddie Bowman (88.80) and Devin Logan (82.60) finished in first and third place, respectively. New Zealander Janina Kuzma finished second with 85.00.

“Cassie skied well on Wednesday,” said Canadian team head coach Trennon Paynter. “Missing the podium by just a very small margin is a little tough. Fourth is still certainly a great result. I’m sure both her and Mike (Riddle) wanted to get on the podium and were a little disappointed to just barely miss it. But they should be happy with how well they skied.”
