Jamie Nicholls clinches podium at final Snowboard Slopestyle World Cup end the season in second place overall. NEW

 
GB Park and Pipe snowboarder Jamie Nicholls has claimed a third place finish in the last Snowboard Slopestyle World Cup of the season in Spindleruv Mlyn in the Czech Republic.

It means he comes second overall in the World Cup Tour behind Redmond Gerard from the USA who won the Crystal Globe.

Landing a cab 1440 in his third and final run, Nicholls moved up the rankings to finish third behind Chris Corning of the USA who took the win and Norway's Fridtjof Tischendorf in second.

Nicholls' teammate Rowan Coultas, who had gone directly into finals after a solid qualification performance, finished 8th in the final, with Aimee Fuller placing 4th in the women's competition.

Matt McCormick just missed out on finals after finishing 11th in the semi-final.
 
Jamie Nicholls said after his third place: "I am really happy to finish the season off on a high with a podium in the Czech Republic. I won here last year, so I am glad I was able to perform again and land my 1440. To get second on the World Cup Tour is amazing as well, a good end to the World Cup season."
