Summit’s Fynn Bullock-Womble wins bronze at Junior World Champs
Kaitlyn Adams places ninth in women’s slopestyle competition
The future is bright for Summit County freeskiers and riders as two Summit County locals placed within the top 10 in Leysin, Switzerland, at the 2022 FIS Park and Pipe Junior World Championships with U.S. Snowboard Rookie Team rider Fynn Bullock-Womble placing third.
Bullock-Womble, Alyssa Moroco, Kaitlyn Adams and Alex Thisted all made the trip from Summit County to Switzerland for the junior level competition as they competed in slopestyle and big air competitions from March 6-13.
Bullock-Womble competed in the men’s snowboard slopestyle competition on Thursday, March 10, and was able to make the podium after having a stellar final run.
Bullock-Womble, who is coached by local snowboard coach Nichole Mason, only scored 51 points on his first run meaning he needed a near-perfect run on his final attempt on the slopestyle course in order to break onto the podium.
Bullock-Womble scored an 81.8 on his final run to place third at the junior championship event.
