Last year, Natalia Grossman won all the last five Boulder World Cups. Later she got a bad food poisoning which created stomach problems for many months and she also spent time in the hospital. Last month she was #8 and #13 in the Asia World Cups before getting back on track and winning all three rounds in Salt Lake City. Complete results

Grossman: “Asia was pretty hard for me, so just feeling physically better was already a huge help for me and my mental game. It’s cool to be home, I think this is the best crowd from any World Cup I have ever been to.”
