Canadian freestyle ski report on Naude and Margetts

Penticton's Andi Naude qualified for the six-woman super finals for the first time in her career during the 2013 Freestyle Ski Grand Prix presented by Volvo at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary on Jan. 26.  As reported by the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association, the 17-year-old fell on her final run and finished sixth overall, but was thrilled nonetheless.

“It’s unfortunate I fell pretty hard, but that’s OK," said Naude. "It was so fun and such a good experience, I’m so happy right now.”

During the X Games in Aspen, Col. on Jan. 25, Penticton's Matt Margetts had a rough crash in super pipe training and took six stitches in his chin, making it out of the infirmary and back to the top of the pipe in time for the elimination round. Margetts made some small errors and finished in 11th place.

Canadian Freestyle Halfpipe team coach Marc McDonell told the CFSA he was impressed with Margetts’ grit.

“He’s one tough kid," said McDonell. "Actually, we’re stoked about Matt and are hearing from the judges that they really like his run.”
