After an extremely successful contest day, the expected maloja wind did not arise enough today. Because of the missing wind the second run of the IFCA Freestyle World Championship as well as the European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) had to be postponed to tomorrow. Besides the racemanagement decided that only the men’s category would race the second run. Therefore the two new World Champions, in the women’s and the master’s category, are given.
The lead of Karin Jaggi after yesterday’s first contest day of the IFCA Freestyle World Championship was counted for the final result. Karin Jaggi SUI wins the IFCA Freestyle World Championship and herewith reaches her goal – her 15th World Champion title and at the same time the first World Champion title in her home country. As second and Vice World Champion is placed Laure Treboux SUI. On the third place is Yoli Freites de Breandt from Venezuela.
