    Oskar Kwiatkowski with another victory in Canada 

    The Pole secured a second victory in the World Cup snowboarding competition this season, with a win in the giant slalom race at Blue Mountain in Canada. This success made him the new front-runner in the competition!

    At 26 years old, Kwiatkowski reaffirmed his spot among the world’s best snowboarders when he won the competition in Scuol, Italy two weeks ago. Last Thursday, he continued his streak of success by placing third in Blue Mountain. On Friday, he was able to make it all the way to the finals at the Canadian resort.

    Kwiatkowski defeated Daniele Bagozza of Italy, Korean Lee Sang-Ho and Masaki Shiba of Japan in turn. In the final, he faced Alexander Payer. The Pole proved to be faster by exactly 0.14 seconds than the Austrian.

    “Two podiums in two days for Oskar Kwiatkowski in Blue Mountain. After finishing in third place yesterday, Kwiatkowski stepped things up a notch today, taking the win against Alexander Payer and claiming his second top spot of the season. Way to go Oskar!,”

    Kwiatkowski’s victory was twofold; not only did the Pole move to first place in the World Cup rankings for giant slalom, but he also surpassed Andreas Prommegger’s score of 307 points by adding 27 more points to his total of 334.
