Meyer 3rd in national ski event
April 18, 2012
Harry Meyer, 13, finished third overall at the USASA National Championhip in Colorado recently.
Meyer, who particpated as a freeride skier, was ranked first in the region in the rail jam, halfpipe, slopestyle and skicross events entering the national event at Copper Mountain.
His best finish was a second place in the rail jam and a third in the slopestyle. He also took seventh in skicross. Unfortunately, Meyer fell twice going for big air in the halfpipe.
All in all, it was a sensational effort for the Carson City youngster.
