“I was stoked to have a win in my backyard with my mum and dad watching on, alongside some good mates from all around the world. Thredbo really stepped it up this year,” said Henshaw.
The Toyota One Hit Wonder is Australia’s first gold ranked AFP (Association of Freeski Professionals) Big Air event which sees points contributed to the athletes’ AFP World Tour standings. The week culminated after several days of action with invited athletes launching off the 95ft step-up jump, the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere, built by Thredbo’s renowned park builder Charles Beckinsale.
“The magnitude of tricks thrown is usually a testament to how good the jump is. This is the best jump I've hit since I was here this time last year," said Wells.
The focus of the Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under now turns to the People’s Choice, where the online audience will choose their favourite trick, to go live later this week at onehitwonderevent.com. Voters also go into the draw to win the ‘Ultimate Winter Prize’ worth over $10,000 including an all-expenses-paid holiday for two to Hakuba, Japan staying at the luxurious Phoenix Hotel, a complete Salomon ski or snowboard package and an all-new GoCam waterproof HD camera.
