Olivia Asselin Secures Bronze at 2024 Tignes Mountain Shaker Slopestyle FIS World Cup

Calgary, Alberta- Canadian freeskier Olivia Asselin clinched the bronze medal at the 2024 Tignes Mountain Shaker Slopestyle FIS World Cup. After opting out of the Big Air competition, Asselin left her mark on the slopes of Tignes.

Asselin’s performance earned her a score of 74.81, marking her second career top-3 finish. Notable highlights of her run included a right rodeo high safety, a flawless switch left 720, and a series of rail maneuvers that featured a switch left 270 onto the first rail, followed by a left 270 onto rail two, and a seamless transition into a right slide to 450 off the canon rail. Asselin capped off her performance with a left corked 900 tail on the final jump.

With the Tignes Mountain Shaker event now concluded, attention turns to the final showdown of the 2023/24 FIS Freeski season in Switzerland. The slopes of Silvaplanaโ€™s Corvatsch resort will host from March 22nd to 24th.

Joining Asselin in Tignes but failing to make the final were Canadians: Mark Hendrickson (17th), Edouard Therriault (21st), Etienne Geoffroy Gagnon (26th), Alex Henderson (43rd), Bruce Oldham (46th) and Evan Mceachran (53rd).

The team moves to the final slopestyle World Cup event of the 2023-24 season next week in Silvaplana, Switzerland.
