Chinese dominate at home again at second aerials World Cup


All but one podium place went to Chinese aerialists today (Dec. 19) at the second World Cup contest of the season in Beida Lake, China. Today’s event was originally scheduled to take place yesterday but was postponed do to high winds.

Qi Guangpu took the men’s win with a score of 245.74 over teammate and yesterday’s winner Jia Zongyang with 245.17 points. The only non Chinese jumper to land on the podium today was Switzerland’s Renato Ulrich in third with 232.72 points.

Canadian Warren Shouldice (second yesterday) just missed the podium in third.

“With only three guys left to go the snow started and the wind direction changed. I could tell I was about one, to one-and-a-half kilometers per hour slow coming in to my take off, so I had to break form in the air because I didn’t have enough height,” said Shouldice. “But that wasn’t my big mistake, my mistake was that I missed my landing a bit by taking a deep squat. I’m glad I didn’t crash, but that squat cost me a spot on the podium today.”

After finishing second yesterday, World Champion silver medalist China’s Xu Mengtao led the second all Chinese womne’s podium sweep. Cheng Shuang, yesterday’s third place finisher, improved to second today while Xu Sicun rounded out the podium in third. Chinese women filled the top seven spots.

No American jumpers made the trip to China.

The aerials World Cup now takes a three-week break over the holidays before action resumes in Mont Gabriel, Canada Jan 15-16.
