Oh Canada! Elizabeth Hosking Win's Silver at World Champs!
The silver medal at the FIS World Championships belongs to Elizabeth Hosking (CAN), as the 21-year-old became the first Canadian woman ever to hit the halfpipe World Championships podium with her 85.50-scoring first run.
With the biggest top-to-bottom amplitude of any in the women’s finals, Hosking’s run began with a backside 540 Weddle grab, into a massive frontside 720 where she just tickled the melon grab, into a switch crippler with a frontside grab, then a corked frontside 540 frontside grab, before finish it all off with an alley-oop frontside 540 frontside grab.
Hosking has been on a tear this season, progressing to be a podium threat at every event she's entered.
