Katie Ormerod claimed silver at the first World Cup event of the season

British snowboarder Katie Ormerod has finished third at the Big Air World Cup in Alpensia, South Korea – which will host the 2018 Winter Olympics.

It was her second podium finish of the season after claiming silver in the Pleasure Jam event last weekend.

The PyeongChang Olympic test event was won by Austria’s Anna Gasser, with the USA’s Julia Marino in second while Briton Aimee Fuller, 25, finished 11th.

“I landed both the runs I wanted,” said Ormerod, 19.

“I am super happy to get bronze, especially as the standard of riding was the highest it’s been,” she added.
