O’Connor makes semi final Slopestyle

February 6, 2014

Ireland’s Seamus O’Connor will compete in the slopestyle semi-finals on Saturday after finishing in 13th place in his heat at the opening event of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The 16-year-old snowboarder enjoyed a decent start to the games in his first run before improving with a score of 40.00 on his second run.

That second run score would have been much higher but whilst attempting a difficult triple cork his landing was affected.

O’Connor will also compete in the halfpipe event which gets underway on Tuesday.
