Morison gets berth in Olympic Nomination
(Valmalenco, ITA – March 22, 2009) Canada concluded the 2009 LG Snowboard FIS World Cup on a successful note having two riders on the Parallel GS podium in Valmalenco, Italy on the last day of competition, with Jasey-Jay Anderson of Mont-T
remblant, Québec showing his late season supremacy for the victory matched with a silver medal by Caroline Calvé of Aylmer, Québec.
With the two podiu
ms, Canada concluded the 2009 season with 23 medals -six gold, seven silver and 10 bronze, just one medal shy of the All Time World Cup record set last season.
In Valmalenco a
, Canada won five medals making the World Cup Finals the most productive stop on the World Cup this season
CALVÉ GETS FIRST PODIUM OF CAREER
In Women’s action, Caroline Calvé won the silver medal, winning her first ever World Cup medal on the LG Snowboard FIS World Cup Tour.
“It wasn’t an unexpected result with the results that I had in La Molina last week in tough course conditions. To have unblocked over there and have good feelings gave me momentum and confidence that I didn’t have before,” said Calvé after the race. “I didn’t enter the race telling myself I needed a medal, but on the other side I knew I was feeling really well, in good physical shape and not physically tired from the season.”
Calvé won her first three duals to make it into the Big Finals but conceded victory to the 2009 World Cup champion Amelie Kober of Germany.
WOMEN: CALVÉ PUTS IT ALL ON THE LINE
La Molina, Spain. 15/03/2009
Within the Women’s category, Caroline Calvé of Aylmer, Québec was the only Canadian to qualify for the elimination rounds by posting the 13th fastest qualifying time.
Calvé finished in seventh position, posting her career best result and first top ten result in Parallel Giant Slalom on the World Cup tour.
“I am happy with the result. I felt really good out there today. When I fell in the first run, there was a side of me who was disappointed. I went for it all today and gave everything,” said Calvé after her race. “I made that small mistake in the pitch. I put too much inclination on my board, and with the soft snow and bumps, no one was allowed a mistake in today’s race. The conditions were still pretty good for the track.”
Calvé is back racing this season after a complete knee reconstruction following an injury that occurred after last season.
“I feel very good physically since a while now. What is most difficult to regain is the mental confidence, the confidence to be aggressive, to look for speed and to believe in you. That is a completely different rehabilitation process that few people can concretely see. It is a road that one has to go through as well as the physical rehabilitation.”
In the dual rounds, Calvé defeated Germany’s Isabella Laboeck in the opening round to advance to the quarterfinals. In her second dual, Calvé faced American Michelle Gorgone. Calvé took the maximum time penalty of 1.5 seconds in the first run. In the second run, Calvé put everything on the line hoping to regain the time deficit to her competitor, but the American stood tall and won the dual.
