Naude lands her second podium in Deer Valley

Penticton’s Andi Naude was part of the Canadian contingent that delivered strong performances in Deer Valley, Utah on Feb. 4.

Naude, an Apex Freestyle Club alumni, clinched her second World Cup podium of the season, taking second. Freestyle Canada stated in a press release that it is another great performance for Naude as she establishes herself as a top contender on the Canadian team.

“I’m so happy to be on the podium tonight. It was such a great race. Everyone was pushing it, and the course was really fun to ski,” said Naude during a phone interview after the race. “It was difficult, but it brought out the best in all of us.”

Naude, who earned a silver medal in moguls in Saint-Côme, QC in late January, described her run with Australia’s Britteny Cox as a “fight to the end.”

“It was really exciting and a lot of fun to be out there,” said Naude.

With the course as tough as it was, Naude agreed that makes her result that much better, especially because she stayed on her feet.

“I was lucky enough to make it pretty far today,” she said.

Naude said what gave her an edge was sticking to the process and not letting the others get to her. A quick start out of the gate also put pressure on the other skiers.
