Calgary’s Roz Groenewoud finished in 7th place in the Ladies freestyle halfpipe finals. She fell in her first run, and came in with the third best score in the second run.
She had surgery after injuring the lateral meniscus in both knees in December 2013.
Roz G had DOUBLE KNEE SURGERY, right before Christmas this past year, & just came 6th at the Olympics. Canada, give @rozgroenewoud a high5!
