Andri Ragettli topped a Swiss one-two-three in the men’s freestyle ski slopestyle event at the International Ski Federation World Cup in Bakuriani, while Canada’s Megan Oldham captured the women’s title.

Ragettli put the disappointment of missing out on a medal at the Winter Olympics in Beijing behind him by securing gold at the Georgian resort.

The world champion, who topped the qualification standings at Beijing 2022 only to finish fourth, stamped his authority on the competition in Bakuriani with a first run score of 73.75 points.

After two more runs, his opening tally proved to be enough as he overcame Swiss brothers Colin and Thierry Wili who scored 64.11 and 64.06 respectively.

It was Ragettli’s second successive slopestyle victory on the World Cup circuit following his victory in Font Romeu in France as he leads the standings with 200 points - 78 more than nearest rival Colin Wili.

World bronze medallist Oldham came out on top in the women’s event after prevailing with a first-run score of 75.41.

Switzerland’s Sarah Höfflin scored 72.38 in the opening run to move one place behind Oldham but was unable to improve on that score in the next two runs.

Germany's Alia Delia Eichinger claimed bronze with 67.00 as 15-year-old compatriot Muriel Mohr came fourth with 57.78.

Oldham is third in the slopestyle standings on 136, behind Estonia's Kelly Sildaru and Höfflin who sit on 200 and 160 respectively with two events to go.

Qualification had been cancelled after competition was called off yesterday and Thursday (March 3) due to adverse weather conditions.

Organisers also agreed to call off today's snowboard slopestyle qualification with the final scheduled to take place tomorrow.

The competitions are serving as a test event for the 2023 Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships which will be held at the resort.
