Aimee Fuller

British snowboarder, Aimee Fuller OLY, finished 11th out of 27 riders in the FIS World Cup qualifier.

Competing on Saturday 2nd December in the Ladies’ Snowboard Big Air in the German city of Möenchengladbach, Aimee gained 240 World Cup points and added to her position in the Olympic quota list. Riding in extremely foggy conditions and against a strong field, Aimee delivered two solid and controlled runs.

Aimee Fuller said:

“I’m happy with my riding in Germany, I feel strong and in control on my board. It’s 8 weeks until the Games and I am excited to focus my attention now on training bigger tricks in preparation for it. I am thrilled to have secured another solid result, adding to my position in the Olympic quota list. I am well within the Team GB criteria of 2 top 12s.

Having finished last season with 4 top 5s across Big Air and Slopestyle. The count down is on and I am looking forward on focusing on what matters between now and The Olympics, which is my training.”

Next up for Aimee is a training camp until Christmas with the GB Park and Pipe Team in Livigno, Italy. Team GB will be selected after the last World Cup – the LAAX Open, running 17th-20th of January in Switzerland, which will be Aimee’s next and final pre-Olympics contest.
