ROSEY FLETCHER OLYMPIC ELIGIBLE
WITH SECOND IN KREISCHBERG PGS

KREISCHBERG, Austria (Jan 8.) - Double Olympian Rosey Fletcher (Girdwood, AK) breathed a big sigh of relief Sunday as she became eligible for her third Olympic Games by nailing a second place parallel giant slalom result in Austria. “Here on Kreischberg, I once won and finished once third. Now I grabbed silver. Kreischberg will always have a special place in my heart,” said Fletcher.

Winning the event were reigning PGS World Cup champs Daniela Mueli and Philipp Shoch of Switzerland. The top American male rider was Olympic bronze medalist Chris Klug (Aspen, CO) in 15th.

The result marks the 20th World Cup podium for the Alaskan, who also owns silver medals from the 1999 and 2000 World Championships.

The top criteria for determining the U.S. Olympic Snowboard Team in PGS is that a rider must have a top-four World Cup result on the season. Thus far, Fletcher is the only alpine rider to have completed this criteria. The team will be named on Jan. 17 following the final stop of the Chevrolet U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix at Mountain Creek, N.J.
