Zoe Gillings qualifies 11th in final World Cup round

British number one Zoe Gillings bounced back from a fall to qualify 11th at the final round of the boarder-cross World Cup in Valmalenco, Italy.

The Isle of Man snowboarder's quickest run was 3.46 seconds slower than fastest qualifier Maelle Ricker.

The 26-year-old from the Isle of Man took a tumble during a training run on Monday but was not injured.

"I took quite a hard knock on my head bit I am happy with how today went," said Gillings.

She is currently ranked seventh in the world after reaching the final in three of the five rounds so far.

Canadian Dominique Maltais currently leads the overall standings, ahead of the injured Lindsey Jacobellis.
