EYOF Boys Slalom and end of competition

The boys raced slalom yesterday and had mixed fortunes. Starting wit bib number 76 and 82 respectively, both Hubert and Sean went out of the gate pretty positively on the first run.
Hubert hip slid in the middle section of the course but got up and continued to make it into 62nd position. Sean hooked a tip about half way down, unfortunately finishing his race there.
The 2nd run saw Hubert move up to 42nd place. A pretty good move from start number 76!

The guys had no competition today so we had a rest day and went to watch the ice hockey final between Finland and Russia. The Russians won on sudden death in extra time after a full time score of 1-1. That was unfortunate for the fins as they had played a better game generally.
Tonight saw the closing ceremony with Victoria Bell carrying the flag for Ireland.
Tomorrow sees us travel down to Bormio for the start of the English Champs for a week. Next blog on Sunday.
