Junior World Championships conclude in Livigno amidst challenging weather for Big Air and Slopestyle events

Slopestyle and Big Air Showdown in Livigna: Adaptability Prevails Despite Winter Weather

Despite the calendar turning to spring, the European Alps have been gripped by winter weather for almost two weeks now. This has been a challenge for late-season competitions scheduled in the region after the conclusion of the World Cup season. One such event that was impacted was the Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships for slopestyle and big air.

The competition faced rough weather conditions throughout the week, culminating in the cancellation of the big air finals on Saturday due to inclement weather which posed safety concerns. However, results were still awarded in most of the competitions that were part of the Livigna 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships. The slopestyle finals took place as scheduled on Wednesday, while the snowboard big air podiums were determined based on qualification results leading up to the cancelled finals session on Saturday. Unfortunately, the men’s freeski big air competition had to be scrapped entirely due to weather conditions.

In snowboarding events, Laura Zaveska of Czechia secured gold in slopestyle with Yura Murase of Japan taking silver and Rebecca Flynn of USA earning bronze. In men’s slopestyle competition, Brooklyn Depriest of USA claimed gold, followed by Romain Allemand of France with silver and Rocco Jamieson of New Zealand securing bronze medal. Despite these challenges posed by winter weather, athletes displayed their skills and determination in facing adversity.

In conclusion, while bad weather has continued to affect late-season competitions in Europe’s Alps region, athletes have shown resilience and adaptability in dealing with it. The cancellation of some events did not dampen their spirits as they continue to showcase their talent and passion for their sport despite challenging conditions.
