This weekend the last competition of the season, the Jon Olsson Invitational (AFP Platinum Big Air), went down in Are, Sweden.
They built one of the biggest Big Air Jumps ever but unfortunately due to too heavy and inconsistent winds we were not able to have a competition on the big jump. So they built a smaller but still very good jump next to the big one and we were able to have a good competition.
The format was 4 jumps, the 2 best scores (1 single flip & 1 free jump) counted. In the qualifications on friday I landed two good jumps and ended up in 3rd place. In the semi finals on saturday I did a switch 1260 tail grab and a switch double misty 1260 safety grab, which both scored well. I was very unlucky and missed the super finals by only 0.2 points and ended up on 6th place. Anyway I am still happy with this result and with the way I jumped. This is my best result at a AFP Platinum Big Air so far and I got a lot of AFP points as well.
My competition season is over now. I am going to ski for another 2 weeks in the Corvatsch snow park before I will continue with the swiss military sports program in the beginning of may.
