Top ten world standings cracked for Kennedy-Sim

19 March 2018

SKI CROSS: Sami Kennedy-Sim has ended her season with a career-best overall World Cup tenth place with 259 points.

Her result has been a steady climb up the standings after finishing 12th in 2017, 14th in 2016 and 16th. Her first World Cup season was in 2009/10.

The World Cup Ski Cross Final in Megeve, France over the weekend did not provide the thrilling season finale athletes hoped for after increasingly bad weather forced organisers to cancel the event.

In the prize-giving ceremony under the falling snow in the finish were Sweden’s Sandra Naeslund earned both the ski cross and the Freestyle overall crystal globes for 2017/18.

“I was disappointed to not race and try to improve my world ranking but I am happy to have finished the season tenth overall. Conditions here have been challenging and the track suffered due to rain and snow,” Kennedy-Sim said.

After a long season the two-time Olympian is headed home to Sydney before tackling the 2018/19 season.
