Patrick Burgener and Ursina Haller new Swiss freestyle champs
Pat Burgener and Ursina Haller have been crowned Swiss freestyle champions after both had thrown in the best performances in both, the halfpipe and big air competition last weekend.
On the men's side, 16 years-old kid Burgener was able to take home the top spot in both freestyle competitions, thus finally relegating young guns Max Buri and Aurel Anthamatten to the second and third overall.
While the men's result was a clear decision, the ladies' title decision was a heart beat close one. After Ursina Haller had claimed Gold in the pipe on Saturday, it was Elena Koenz who scored best in Sunday's big air final. Due to the 1-3 and 3-1 result of both, the overall points had to bring the final decision, with the better end for Haller (47.1 over 43.9 points).
Nadja Purtschert rounded out the podium as third.
In the elite final for the Swiss big air title, it was Gian-Luca Cavigelli to earn the honours edging off Max Buri and Fabian Fassnacht to second and third.
