Scott soars to silver

Scott finishes second overall at the 2015/16 FIS Freestyle Skiing Aerials World Cup

Danielle Scott has finished second overall at the 2015/16 FIS Freestyle Skiing Aerials World Cup, after finishing second in the final event of the season in Minsk, Belarus.

The 25 year old VIS athlete was locked in a battle with World Cup leader, Ashley Caldwell of the United States.

After finishing first in qualifying, Scott entered the first final with confidence, putting in a good jump to finish equal fourth, and therefore qualifying for the Super Final.

With the top six qualifying for the Final, Scott was third to jump, and put in a strong jump under pressure, scoring an impressive 96.93. Caldwell though responded magnificently.

Last to jump, and with the World Cup title on the line, she finished with a score of 103.27 to claim a well-deserved win, taking home the crystal globe as World Cup champion for 2015/16.

Following the event, Scott reflected on what was a thrilling finale to the aerials competition. “I’m pretty happy with second overall; it’s one up from last season, so I guess it just keeps getting better and better,” Scott said.

Samantha Wells finished eighth overall in today’s event, while Renee McElduff finished in 17th place.

In the Men’s, David Morris finished 21st to finish the season inside the top ten, ninth overall.

Face to Face Again | Carol Cooke AM

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
