Schoch, Neururer win in snowboarding
Aspen, CO Colorado
AROSA, Switzerland – Simon Schoch of Switzerland and Heidi Neururer of Austria won gold Wednesday in the parallel slalom at the Snowboarding World Championships.
Simon Schoch beat his brother Philipp in the men’s final, with Rok Flander of Slovenia coming third.
Austria swept the women’s medals, with Marion Kreiner finishing runner-up to Neururer and Doresia Krings beating the Netherlands’ Nicolien Sauerbreij to finish third.
Let’s make some skiing predictions. I made my X Games snowboarding predictions a day earlier and remain only mildly lukewarm in terms of confidence, but maybe I’ll feel better about the skiers.
