Zoe's verdict on result in Canada

Manx snowboardcrosser Zoe Gillings says she's delighted with her eighth place at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The result represents a big improvement on her performance in Turin four years ago, when she was 15th.

Zoe says qualification went well as did her quarter-final.

Unfortunately, she injured her knee on landing after a jump in the semi, which was why she didn't contest the small final to decide 5th to 8th places.

However, she has been honest enough to tell Manx Radio she may well have given it a go if she had been in the main final with medals at stake (play audio file):

Zoe wants to thank everyone in the Isle of Man who has given her support, and you can hear the full interview with her on this evening's Friday Sport programme, just after 6pm.
