Anderson, Corning, Henkes, Qualify to World Championship Slopestyle Finals
Chris Corning (Silverthorne, Colo.) and Judd Henkes (La Jolla, Calif.) qualified first and third respectively for the men Saturday in snowboard slopestyle at the 2019 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships presented by Toyota at Park City Mountain, Utah.
“I’m stoked to make it to finals,” said Henkes, who was among the 10 men to advance to Sunday’s finals.” It’s cool having the World Championships here in Park City. I look forward to closing out the week of World Championship competition tomorrow with slopestyle finals.”
For the women, double-Olympic gold, and five-time X Games gold medalist Jamie Anderson (S. Lake Tahoe, Calif.) qualified third and will be looking for her first-ever World Championship podium.
“I’m excited to ride here in Park City,” said Anderson. “It’s a new course, new energy, and lots of new snow! It should be a really fun final.”
Corning currently leads the FIS snowboard slopestyle World Cup standings and is looking to improve on his bronze medal from the 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain. Henkes is seeking his first top-level international competition result of his career.
The final round competition gets underway Sunday, and the networks of NBC will provide live broadcast and streaming coverage of all the action. NBC will also broadcast a one-hour recap on the men and women’s slopestyle finals at 4:30 p.m. EST.
