U.S. Olympic bronze medalist Rosey Fletcher and Seattle Sonics legend Slick Watts kick-off 2006 North American Snowboarding Finals Riders from U.S., Canada, Australia, Ireland and Philippines open NorAm Finals in front of 15,231 NBA fans at Seattle’s KeyArena
SEATTLE (March 22) – U.S. Olympians Rosey Fletcher (Girdwood, AK), Michelle Gorgone (Sudbury, MA) and Tyler Jewell (Sudbury, MA) along with 2002 bronze medalist Chris Klug (Aspen, CO), joined over 30 alpine snowboarders from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Ireland and the Philippines, Wednesday at Seattle’s KeyArena for the opening ceremonies of the 2006 North American Alpine Snowboarding Finals (www.NorAmFinals.com) during the Sonics – Bucks NBA game.
Led by Sonics legend Slick Watts, the Olympians and other riders marched onto the KeyArena hardwood before 15,231 NBA fans during a break in the second quarter action to open the NorAm Finals. The Ignite the Spirit™ ceremony officially kicked-off a weekend of world-class racing at Washington’s Crystal Mountain that will crown a U.S. and Canadian national champion and help usher in the region’s build-up to the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, B.C.

The NorAm Finals, which is being held for the first time in Washington state, includes seven Olympians and other elite-level riders vying for a chance to represent their countries in world competition in the coming year. Canada’s Alexa Loo, Philippe Berube and Ross Rebagliati round-out the Olympians who will carve at Crystal this weekend. "Seattle is a gracious host and the NBA experience is amazing,” said Fletcher, a three-time Olympian who will be competing in what is expected to be the final elite level race of her career. “The U.S. team is very excited to be here,” she said. “The field looks great – there are past Olympians, current Olympians and juniors competing. It should make for some exciting racing.” Nor Am Finals

Racing gets underway at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 25, with men’s and women’s qualifying in the PGS event on Crystal’s Gold Hills run - just a short walking distance from the Crystal Mountain Base.
