It's Another Medal For the Aussies! Lydia Lassila Claims Bronze at Sochi
It was a proud (and very emotional) moment for Lydia Lassila who won the bronze medal in the Women's Freestyle Skiing Aerials yesterday. With a score of 72.12 on her last jump it was enough to place third in the event alongside Alla Tsuper of Belarus who won gold with 98.01 and China's Mengtao Xu who claimed the silver with 83.50.
"I was always going to go into these Olympics with that approach, all or nothing," a teary Lassila told Channel 10.
Lydia's win brings the Australian medal tally to two after Torah Bright won silver in the Snowboard Halfpipe, which makes the women the ones to watch at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
