Snowboard premiere in St. Moritz: Visintin on the podium

On Friday the World Cup in snowboard cross took place in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Also there was Omar Visintin from Algunder, who was able to make it to the final.

For the first time ever, the snowboarders went to St. Moritz, where a World Cup race took place for the first time this year. Also right in the middle was Omar Visintin from Algunder, who showed a very strong performance and was ultimately able to reward himself with 3rd place.

The 34-year-old veteran got off to a good start and, apart from a second place in the round of XNUMX, he was the fastest in his heat in the quarter- and semi-finals. So he made it to the grand final, where he met Kalle Koblet (Switzerland), Eliot Grondin (Canada) and Krystof Choura (Czech Republic). Since the latter made a serious mistake shortly after the start, a three-way battle developed between Grondin, Koblet and Visintin.

The winner in St. Moritz: Eliot Grondin (left).

Visintin was in second place for a long time, but after a small but fatal mistake he had to give way to Koblet and was no longer able to catch up with him. Grondin took the win, Koblet came second and Visintin took third place. Visintin continues in two weeks; From February 3nd to 2th the Algunder will be in action in Gudauri in Georgia.
