Tsubaki Miki, who belongs to our company, participated in “FIS SNOWBOARD WORLD CUP BANNOYE” held in BANNOYE (Russia) on February 6th and 7th, 2021.

 

■ February 6th (Sat) [WOMANS PGS (Parallel Giant Slalom)]

[Qualifying]
・ 43 people from all over the world entered this race.
——————————————————————
* From Japan, Tsubaki Miki and Tomoka Takeuchi will participate.
——————————————————————

 

(Qualifying)
1st: Blue course 38.07 seconds (5th place)
2nd: Red course 39.57 seconds (4th place)

Passed 8th place in qualifying in total time: 1 minute 17.64 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).
Tsubaki chose the red course and won by 0.08 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 Selina Jörg(1988)
・ Red course Tsubaki Miki (2003)

Tsubaki played against strong opponent Selina Jörg (Germany) who passed the qualifying in 1st place, and was eliminated by 1.97 seconds, resulting in 7th place.
She has advanced to the Top 8 for the second consecutive race, but the wall of the World Cup Best 4 seems to be still high.

 
 

■ February 7th (Sun) [WOMANS PSL (parallel rotation)]

[Qualifying]
・ 43 people from all over the world entered this race.
——————————————————————
* From Japan, Tsubaki Miki and Tomoka Takeuchi will participate.
——————————————————————

(Qualifying)
1st: Red course 34.66 seconds (12th place)
2nd: Blue course 34.44 seconds (8th place)

Total time: 1 minute 09.1 seconds, 17th place in qualifying (defeated in qualifying)

Due to strong winds on the second day, the start time of the race was delayed by about 4 hours.

 

As a result of challenging with a new way of sliding in bad weather, Tsubaki lost a lot of time in the first run and was eliminated from the qualifying for the first time this season.

 

The race schedule for Tsubaki to participate this month ends with this race.
Tsubaki will hold a training camp in Europe for the World Championships to be held in Slovenia next month (3/1 – 2).

 

Thank you for your continued support.
