Maggie Voisin, 15, finishes first in ski slopestyle qualifying
Less than a week after her 15th birthday, Maggie Voisin stayed
on the path toward the Olympics, finishing first in ski slopestyle
qualifying Friday at the season’s second qualifying event.
After falling and posting a score of 6.8 in her first run at the
U.S. Grand Prix, the teenager from Whitefish, Mont., scored an 88.0
on her second trip. Voisin will go last in Saturday’s final, hoping
to add to a third-place finish on her birthday last week in the
season’s first Olympic selection event.
Germany’s Lisa Zimmerman finished second and American Greta
Eliassen was third on a snowy, windblown day that was tough on some
American Devin Logan and Canadian Kim Lamarre, who finished 1-2
last week, each failed to make finals.
