Brits finish in top 20 at Snowboard World Cup

Brits finish in top 20 at Snowboard World Cup Four British skiers competing at this year's FIS Snowboard World Cup Finals have finished in the top 20 of the competition.

The highest finisher was Scotland's Ben Kilner who came in ninth in the men's halfpipe, his highest-ever World Cup finish.

Meanwhile, Dom Harrington, 24, finished 20th in the event.

Kate Foster, 23, came 15th in the women's event, followed by Lesley McKenn, who finished 16th.

Leo Addington, the British team's halfpipe coach, said the World Cup had concluded with a great finish for the UK participants.

"The team will now head to Laax in Switzerland for the British National Championships [and then] some well deserved downtime," he commented.

German snowboarder Amelie Kober was crowned the overall winner of the women's competition, claiming her home country's first Parallel World Cup title.

Jasey-Jay Anderson of Canada took victory in the men's event.
