Aleksander Aurdal (23) was the dominant winner of the Norwegian National Championship in slopestyle in Kirkerudbakken, Oslo Saturday. By winning the Championship he was also the first athlete achieving the kings trophee.

 

Competing in all major events the last season, winning the kings trophee is still the greatest achievement so far. "I can't really be more satisfied than this. It's absolutely amazing, and I find it highly exciting that our sport is becoming such a successfull event" Aurdal said.

"The Crown Prince said I had a good run, and he found it interesting to watch" Aurdal added.  

 

Aurdal won with his 720 cork and a 900 switch on the jumps. "I waited for the snow to become softer in the afternoon before I gave it all. The level became higher as well, but I managed my run quite well" Aurdal stated.


Chief of Freestyle Sport in the Norwegian Ski Federation, Morten Skarpaas was excited after the Championships; "It was a lot of good skiers starting today. If you compare the level from last season, the level has increased significantly. I'm also very happy about the ski president, Sverre Seeberg and our Crown Prince chose to come and watch" a thrilled Skarpaas said.
