Tsubaki Miki won the 7th place in the personal best record at the World Cup



Tsubaki Miki, who belongs to our company, participated in “SNOWBOARD WORLD CUP MOSCOW” held in MOSCOW (Russia) on January 30th, 2021.


■ January 30th (Sat) [WOMANS PSL (parallel rotation) / night race]

・43 people from all over the world entered this race.

* From Japan, Tsubaki Miki and Tomoka Takeuchi will participate.



1st: Blue course 21.33 seconds (6th place)
2nd: Red course 22.71 seconds (3rd place)

Total time: Passed 8th place in qualifying in 44.44 seconds

* Only the top 16 players (32 in total) from each course (red & blue) can advance to the second qualifying run.
* The top 16 players in the total time of the red course and blue course will advance to the final tournament.


【 Final 】


・ The final is a tournament system in which the player who finishes early wins, not the time.
* The tournament will be organized so that the top and bottom qualifiers will compete in the first match. (Example: 16th vs 1st)
Therefore, Tsubaki is 8th in qualifying, so she will play against the 9th in qualifying.


(1/8 FINAL: Best 16)

・ Blue course Claudia Riegler (1973)
・ Red course Tsubaki Miki (2003)

Played against Austrian veteran Claudia Riegler (47 years old) who was 9th in qualifying.
Tsubaki chose the red course and won by 0.24 seconds.

* In the final tournament, the top qualifying players will be given the right to choose the course to run.

(1/4 FINAL: Quarterfinals)

・ Blue course Sofia Nadyrshina (2003)
・ Red course Tsubaki Miki (2003)

The quarterfinals were the same opponents as the World Junior Championships finals at the end of last year.
Sophia Nadirsina (Russia) is 17 years old, born in 2003, the same year as Tsubaki.
She won the World Cup twice in January this year after winning the World Junior Championships at the end of last year. (Jan.9th at Scuol, Jan.12th at Bad Gastein)
The match against Tsubaki’s biggest rival was unfortunately defeated by 0.43 seconds.


Tsubaki is in 7th place and is her first World Cup best 8 winner.
Being in the top position in qualifying (having the right to choose a course in the final) is an important point for winning the final race.


I would like Tsubaki to rush the next week’s World Cup 2 races from the start, aiming for the goal of this season, “Achieving the World Cup Best 8 or higher three times or more.”

2/6 (Sat) WC / Bannoye (Russia) PGS
2/7 (Sun) WC / Bannoye (Russia) PSL

Thank you for your continued support.
