オリンピックの出場を掛けて、いよいよ大事な時期となっている今、明日はワールドカップ・モスクワ大会が行われる。

日本からは、前大会で3位に入った鬼塚雅、また藤森由香、広野あさみが参加。
また、男子では稲村奎汰が出場。

女子では、アンナ・ガッサーという絶対的なクイーンが参加リストに載っているが、男子ではマーク・マクモリス、セバスチャン・トゥータントなどの強力カナダ勢は出ない。それだけにここで結果を残すチャンス。

また、女子でもジェイミー・アンダーソンなどアメリカ、カナダ勢は出場せず、ここは大きな勲章を勝ち取る大チャンス!日本勢のメダルが期待される。

大会前日の公開練習は、強風と寒さ(マイナス22度)で、1時間ほどしかなかったとか。
現地モスクワは過酷な環境のようだが、ぜひ良いニュースを届けてほしい!

以下、モスクワ大会紹介する動画。

The world’s best freestyle snowboarders will gather in the Russian Capital after a 8-year absence to contest the fifth Big Air event of the season which will be held on Saturday 7th at the ‘Grebnoy’ channel Olympic training center. Canada’s Max Parrot took the lead in the discipline standings following the Copper Mountain stop while Austrian Anna Gasser remained in the lead despite sitting out the event on the US soil because of a knee injury.

Snowboard is one of the six Olympic disciplines administered by FIS – The International Ski Federation. The discipline consists of five different events Big air, Halfpipe, Slopestyle, Snowboard cross, and parallel slalom. Snowboarding is a young snow sport which began in the 1960’s. The 1960’s were a time of evolution, as young people looked for different forms of expression in winter sports. Snowboarding began to be organized in that decade when the advancements in modern snowboard equipment and freedom of expression led to new and exciting snowboard techniques. Snowboarding’s growing popularity is reflected in its recognition as an official sport: in 1985, with the first World Cup was held in Zürs, Austria. In 1998 Snowboarding was added to the Olympic winter schedule.
