In the final was an American, two Canadians and another one.  The American was in the lead with 100 yards to go with the one who wern't Canadian 100 yards or so behind, and the American did a fancy trick and she fell over and the other one took over and took Gold, while the American got Silver.  Obivously one of the Canadians got Bronze but one og them fell into the fence and they got medics out for her.  Its a brilliant sport though, makes me wanna take up snow boarding.

apparently the british girl who was in snowboard cross was 4th in the world last year until she got injured and shes only just starting back again so it looks like we have a british snowboarder who can be competitive with the americans

Yeh I watched her, she lost in the Quarter Final.  When she got injured she shattered her foot, broken in 7 places I think she said in an interview.
