Association of Freeskiing Professionals release first set of skier rankings for 2010-11

Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 23, 2010 10:04 am

The Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP) have just released their first set of rankings of the 2010-11 season.

The current rankings are based on results of the Southern Hemisphere’s summer ski contests including the 2010 Volkl Freeski Open and the inaugural 2010 FIS Freestyle and Snowboard Junior World Championships.

The Junior Worlds marked the first time that the AFP used a FIS World Championship event in their rankings. The historic event also allowed competitors to factor their contest results into both their AFP rankings and FIS points.

As an IOC decision looms over whether to include ski halfpipe at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, AFP rankings are likely to grow increasingly more important in the coming years. AFP rankings will be used this year to pre-qualify athletes for halfpipe events including the USSA Grand Prix at Copper in December, as well as the Freestyle World Championships in Utah this February.

However, the current complexion of the AFP rankings are certain to change in the coming months once the Northern Hemisphere winter kicks off. AFP Overall Champions Jossi Wells and Roz Groenewoud haven’t even broken into the rankings yet – choosing to take the summer off – something that is certain to change in the coming months.
