Skier Lands Southern Hemisphere’s First Ever Triple Cork on Day One of the Toyota One Hit Wonder
One of Australia’s biggest ski exports and future Olympic Gold hopeful for Sochi 2014, Russ Henshaw reigned supreme when he landed the first ever triple cork 1440 (four inverted rotations) in the Southern Hemisphere.
Online PR News – 15-September-2012 – Sydney/NSW – Day one saw the original People’s Choice Big Air event kick off in stunning conditions at Thredbo Alpine Village, with world-class freeskiers performing their most impressive, crowd pleasing tricks off the biggest jump in the Southern Hemisphere built by Thredbo’s renowned park builder Charles Beckinsale.
“I’ve never seen action like we did today in the Australian mountains. It was a great indication of what the younger riders in this sport can do. It’s the perfect environment for them to up-skill alongside the elite international competitors,” said Ramone Cooper of Ski and Snowboard Australia.
The People’s Choice online public voters also go into the draw to win the ‘Ultimate Winter Prize’ worth over $10,000 including an all-expenses-paid holiday for two to Hakuba, Japan staying at the luxurious Phoenix Hotel, a complete Salomon ski or snowboard package and an all-new GoCam waterproof HD camera.
