Canadian Harle reaches podium for 2nd straight week in World Cup ski big air
Campbell River, B.C., native scores bronze in Atlanta
The 23 year old from Campbell River, B.C., took home the bronze with a total score of 185.25 in a closely-contested contest on Saturday in Atlanta, Ga.edallist Antoine Adelisse of France (186.50) and 2.25 points behind the champion Alexander Hall of the United States (187.50).
Just last week, at the venue for the 2020 Winter Olympics in Beijing, Harle took second during another World Cup event. There, he uncorked a switch 1800 — a backwards takeoff with five full rotations — for the first time in his career as one of his two scored jumps.
