Jaimee won the Women's Slalom event with a score of 2.5 buoys @ the 10.75 m (39.5 off) line length after setting a new U21 Canadian record and pending world championships record of 5 buoys @ 10.75 m in the prelims.

Paige Rini from Orlando, Florida who skis for Canada, was second and Sade Ferguson of Australia was third with scores of 1 @ 10.75 m and 0.5 @ 10.75 m respectively.

Other individual Canadian medal winners at the event included Neilly Ross (Orlando FL) Silver in Women's Trick and Dominique Allard-Grondin (Montreal QC) Silver in Women's Jump. 

Canada placed second in the team event behind Great Britain and Ukraine won the bronze medal.

Canada's six-person team was composed of Jaimee Bull (ON), Thomas Daigle (QC),  Evan Kraus (AB), Dominique Grondin-Allard (QC), Paige Rini (FL), and Neilly Ross (FL). 

The next big event for Jaimee is the Open World Championships to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this coming August.

In the meantime, Bull will return home to North Bay to train on Trout Lake.
