      Women’s Snowboard Cross at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics was quite fun. The qualifying was boring, but the heats were much more exciting.

      France’s Claire Chapotot stalled out at the beginning of her quarter final heat that included Norway’s Helene Olafsen and Faye Gulini of America. Gulini didn’t make it; she was just too slow, but it was exciting to watch

      Switzerlands’s Olivia Nobs move forward.

      It was Maelle Ricker of Canada who led the whole way of her quarter final. There wasn’t much action here, with all four competitors spread out. After Sondra Frei of Switzerland wiped out, it made it easy for Nelly Moenne Loccoz of France to get the second transfer spot to the semi-finals.

      Lindsey JacobEllis of America won ...

      • her quarter final race easily. She took off early and led throughout. There wasn’t a lot of action in this qualifier, either, though Denmark’s competitor went down early. Otherwise, it was follow the leader.

        In the first semi-final, it was a really good, intense start. They were all together for the opening part, and that was exciting. Then

        it was watching Olafsen and Nobs trade off the lead. It was a fun race.

        The second semi-final saw unexpected action with Jacobellis going off course and being out of the race early. That gave Ricker an easy show down the hill to the win.

        This course was huge and tricky, but watching these athletes navigate it and race against one another was a pleasure.
