British slopestyle skier James Woods says that he is "really proud" of his win in the Freeski Open in New Zealand.

James Woods has said that he is "really proud" to have won a recent event on the AFP World Tour in slopestyle in New Zealand.

The Sheffield skier topped qualifying before clinching top spot on the podium at the Freeski Open.

He told the Sheffield Telegraph: "My first run was good but I knew I had more to give.

"When the level of competition is so high, you can't play around. My goal is always to ski the best I can so I wanted to improve.

"I'm really proud of the rail section and the kickers were smooth. I went big and that felt good."

Woods will next be in action in November in the Freeski Cup in Norway.
