Gillings comes sixth

Local snowboarder Zoe Gillings came sixth in the European leg of the Snowboardcross World Cup in Switzerland.

Zoe is currently ranked fourth in the world in snowboardcross, a position she cemented with an excellent fourth place finish in the World Cup event in Argentina in September.

The 23-year-old from Arbory was the only British athlete riding in the World Cup Snowboardcross event in Arosa, Switzerland, this weekend.

She's Britain’s best hope for a medal in snowsports at the Winter Olympics Games in Vancouver 2010.
