Mathilde Gremaud wins World Cup in Chur

Switzerland's Mathilde Gremaud wins the first World Cup in Big Air in Chur after the finals had to be cancelled due to heavy rainfall and the qualification result was taken into account. The exceptional athlete thus celebrates the perfect debut at her first competition on the Fischer Nightstick.

First World Cup stop, first World Cup win

The anticipation for the World Cup start in Chur was huge, the City Big Air attracts thousands of spectators year after year and is popular for its terrific atmosphere among the athletes. Unfortunately, the event did not go quite as planned, but not to the detriment of Fischer newcomer Mathilde Gremaud.

The qualification could still be carried out as planned, Mathilde showed a strong jump with a Left Double Cork 1260 Safety and stood after the qualification with 95.50 points on the first place.

Due to heavy rainfall on the day of the competition, the final had to be cancelled and the scores of the qualification were accepted as the official final results.

Not quite the expected course of events, but all the nicer for Mathilde to be able to start the season with a victory.

With the Austrian Lukas Müllauer, a Fischer athlete was also at the start in the men's race, but unfortunately Lukas could not qualify for the finals, which then could not take place anyway.

The next World Cup will then take place on November 22 to 25 on the Austrian Stubai Glacier, then the slopestylers also start the season.
