Owens sixth at Squaw Valley

11 February 2008

Jenny Owens has continued her good form in ski cross, finishing in sixth place at the Jeep King of the Mountain event in Squaw Valley, California, USA.

Owens qualified for the finals in 11th place, advanced past one heat before being eliminated in the semi-final and went on to finish sixth place.

In the quarter final, Owens finished second in her heat to advance to the next round.

The event was won by ski cross superstar Ophelie David of France, who has dominated the World Cup and Pro circuits all season.

After the race, Owens commented:

“I raced in the Jeep King of the Mountain comp yesterday and once again I had a disappointing qualifying run where I placed 11th, which didn’t make things easy!”

“After coming second in the quarter-final, I got through to the semi-finals, but missed out by half a ski length for the final.”

“I ended up placing 2nd in the small final so came in 6th overall.”

Owens flies to Spain tomorrow to meet up with SSA skier Katya Crema and her coach Matt Lyons, where the next World Cup will be held on the 23rd of February in Sierra Nevada, Spain.
