Devin Logan Wins Jr. Worlds Slopestyle Gold

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 23, 2012 5:45 pm

U.S. freeskiing prodigy Devin Logan has done it again. On Thursday, the 19-year-old Vermont native took first place in slopestyle at the FIS Junior World Championships in Italy. Currently ranked second in women’s slopestyle, and first overall according to the AFP World Ranking, the win was icing on the cake for an already phenomenal season. Under beautiful sunny Italian skies and a soft course Logan landed a cork 720 and linked numerous technical rail tricks for the win over Norway’s Tiril Christiansen.

On the hunt for the overall World Championship title, don’t miss Logan’s final competition for the season on April 19-22 at the AFP World Championships in Whistler, British Columbia. “I am looking forward to AFP World Championships in a couple weeks and it would be awesome to take the slopestye title. Either way I am hoping to hold onto my first place overall ranking, I’ve had a great season and I am happy no matter what,” Logan said.
