The preliminary snowboard slopestyle competition took place at The Genting Ski Park in Zhangjiakou of Beijing Winter Olympic Games on Feb. 5.The sport was first listed as an official event at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, and Chinese athletes have failed to compete in the past two Olympics.Therefore, the 20-year-old Chinese girl, Rong Ge, became the first Chinese athlete to compete in this event at the Winter Olympics.There are two qualifying rounds of snowboard slopestyle, with the top 12 skiers advancing to the finals.Jung fell sadly on the first slide, but she stood up and continued to complete the rest of the routine, including the final 720 degree turn, successfully, to score 29.36 points.In the second round, Jung again chose to compete with her most familiar and skilled movements. Unfortunately, she fell down at the third obstacle bar, which affected her speed and made her unable to complete the rest of the movements. Finally, she ranked 25th among the 30 competitors and missed the finals.”It’s a pity, but I will prepare for the platform more seriously and harder.””I’m really proud to represent China in such a big competition,” she said after the match. “I really cherish the chance to compete against so many amazing athletes.”(the original title: jung finish veneer slope obstacle: “on behalf of the Chinese teams so proud”) source: Beijing daily client | journalists Li Yuanfei 陈嘉堃 Pan Zhiwang Deng Fangjia process editor: u010
