NSWIS athlete Sami Kennedy-Sim stepped onto the podium of a World Cup event for the first time in her career over the weekend, with a silver medal in the ski cross at Idre Fjall in Sweden.
On two previous occasions in her career Kennedy-Sim had made it into the final four of a World Cup, but both times finished just outside the medals. That duck was broken this weekend however, with an impressive ride in the final.
She said after the race, “Today has been an awesome day, this has been my first podium. Now that I have this under my belt I am so ready to repeat it.”
