Snowboard halfpipe is a sport in which players perform aerial performances such as aerial rotation and jumping on an inclined semi-cylindrical slope and score points based on basic movements, rotation, technique, and difficulty to determine rankings.
Lee Chae-woon, who received 74.50 points in the first period, raised the ranking by recording 86.50 points in the second period.
Lee Chae-woon reached 4th place at the World Cup held in Mammoth Mountain, California, USA on the 5th and achieved his best personal World Cup result. If he performs well in the finals of this competition, there is a high possibility that he will be able to break his record again.
Valentino Guselli (Australia) took first place in the preliminary round with 87.75 points. Third place behind Lee Chae-woon is Luka Hirano (Japan) with 86.00 points.
The final, in which the top 10 players from the preliminaries compete, will be held at the same place on the 11th.
