24Sep05 Skiers rise to the challenge of changeable conditions at Enniskillen

While the conditions were good at the start of today's World Cup action for women's slalom, weather conditions began to seriously deterioriate at the start of men's slalom. Although the first half of the course was relatively sheltered in the channel, the second half was in rough windy conditions. In an unprecedented occurance, eight skiers tied a 2@12m to make the finals. And the 2@12 was no gift. Many of the most talented skiers in the world were happy to achieve that score to make the cut. The conditions continued for the trick event. The men contested the event in the cold, windy, and rainy conditions and achieved some very good scores. For jump, the conditions with a stiff tailwind led the officials to decide to just have the finals on the next day. June Fladborg and Angeliki Andrioupoulou, World Jump Champion, put on a jump demonstration for the appreciative crowd. After they skied, the men were going out also, but the rain finally came down too hard to continue the event.

The weather forcast for tomorrow is much improved and it is anticipated that the event will finish in better conditions.

A live webcast of the event is being presented and is available at the address noted below:
