In a spectacular showcase of skill and snowsports prowess, Monster Energy athletes captured top honours at the 2024 FIS Freeski & Snowboard World Cup held in Tignes, France. The competition, which is a celebrated event in the skiing and snowboarding world, saw athletes from around the globe competing in various disciplines, including Big Air and Slopestyle, across both skiing and snowboarding categories.

Leading the pack was Alex Hall, the 25-year-old freeski athlete from Park City, Utah, who dominated the Men’s Freeski Big Air competition. Hall, known for his technical control and unique trick selection, pulled off a series of stunning maneuvers, earning him first place and the prestigious Crystal Globe trophy — an accolade awarded to the World Champion in the discipline. This victory marked Hall’s third World Cup win of the season and his first career Crystal Globe, solidifying his position as a leading figure in the world of freeskiing.

The event was not just a triumph for Hall but also for his teammates, who made impressive podium finishes in their respective categories. Olivia Asselin, the talented 20-year-old freeskier from Québec City, Canada, claimed third place in the Women’s Freeski Slopestyle event. Asselin’s performance, particularly in her second run of the final, was a testament to her skill and potential in the sport, earning her the second FIS World Cup podium finish of her burgeoning career.

On the snowboarding front, the Monster Energy team saw success with 19-year-old Kokomo Murase from Gifu, Japan, taking the top spot in the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle competition. Murase’s second run was nothing short of miraculous, as she executed a series of complex tricks, earning her first Slopestyle win in two years and the sixth FIS World Cup victory of her career.

Adding to the team’s accomplishments, 18-year-old Taiga Hasegawa from Iwakura, Japan, secured third place in the Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle final. Hasegawa’s performance, characterized by speed and precision, was a highlight of the event, showcasing his talent and cementing his status as a rising star in the snowboarding world.

The Tignes Mountain Shaker, part of the FIS World Cup, is not just a competition but a festival that combines high-octane sporting action with concerts, film screenings, and fan activations, making it a standout event in the winter sports calendar. The success of Monster Energy’s athletes at this event underscores their dedication, talent, and the rigorous support and training provided by their team.

As the 2023/24 FIS Snowboard season approaches its conclusion with the upcoming Slopestyle competitions in Silvaplana, Switzerland, fans and enthusiasts alike can look forward to more thrilling performances from these athletes. The achievements in Tignes not only highlight the individual athletes’ exceptional skills and perseverance but also underscore Monster Energy’s ongoing commitment to supporting and promoting excellence in action sports.
