Italy Win Snowboard Parallel Slalom World Cup Event

Italy won the team Snowboard Parallel Slalom World Cup Event in Winterberg, Edging Austria.

Italian Duo Nadya Ochner and Aaron March combined to defeat Austrian favourites Daniela Ulbing and Andreas Prommegger, both Parallel Slalom World Champions, in the final. After Ochner had given Italy a slender lead after her contest with Ulbing, March held on against Prommegger to win by just 0.03 seconds.

It completed a wonderful weekend for March, who was crowned the individual Parallel Slalom Crystal Globe winner with his second place finish.
