Elizabeth Swaney finished last-place in qualification for the status of women ski halfpipe final on Monday after laying down two of the most basic operates imaginable
Elizabeth Swaney, born and raised in the United States but representing Hungary, finished last in qualification for the women’s ski halfpipe final on Monday after passing in two of the simplest controls imaginable that left her more than 40 items behind the 12 th-placed qualifier for the Winter Olympics final.
Although the 33 -year-old ended both moves without descending, Swaney did not attempt a ploy any more advanced than an alley-oop- when a skier revolves 180 magnitudes or more in the uphill direction- on her room to scores of thirty. 00 and 31.40. Swaney’s best rating still left her 13.60 parts behind 23 rd-placed Dane Laila Friis-Salling, who declined on both runs.
Despite appearing to only be interested in ending her runs safely while not attempting to score places or qualify for the final, Swaney still managed to resound downbeat about her performance.
” I didn’t qualify for the finals, so I’m really disappointed with that. But I laboured truly for several years to achieve this ,” Swaney responded when asked about her passions after contesting at an Olympics.
Swaney says she qualified to represent Hungary through her maternal grandparents after previously vying for Venezuela in other wintertime athletics before swapping her allegiance again in 2016 to prepare for Pyeongchang.
A Harvard graduate who formerly guided against Arnold Schwarzenegger in the hasten to be California governor, Swaney simply started skiing at 25 and has been driven ever since in her quest to compete at an Olympics. After invoking monies through online donations to help fuel her Olympic aspirations, Swaney managed to qualify for Pyeongchang due to the sheer capacity of competitions she attended.
