Eva Samková, holder of two Olympic medals in snowboard cross, triumphed in Moscow on Saturday on the FIS SBX World Cup tour. The race was the first-ever SBX in-city, under the lights of Lata Park.
Technical difficulties in the form of a gate malfunction at the start of the 350 meter- long track meant the race had to be re-run, meaning the Czech racer had to win twice.
The racer said the protest lodged which led to the final heat being re-run had been justified and had motivated her to prove that "she was the best".
