It's snowing in Argentina

MANX snowboarder Zoe Gillings finished 10th in the opening LG Snowboard FIS World Cup Snowboardcross competition of the 2009-10 season in Chapelco, Argentina over the weekend.

This is a credible placing after the Ronague woman was forced to take evasive action when world number one Lindsey Jacobellis (USA) crashed just after the start of the race.
