Stassel takes fifth in final Olympic snowboard qualifier

MAMMOTH, CA (KTUU) - With the final Olympic qualifier now in the books, Anchorage's Ryan Stassel plays the waiting game to see if he will be named to the fourth spot on the men's Olympic snowboard team.

Stassel had a brilliant final run in the Mammoth Grand Prix on Saturday that he hopes will be enough to grab him the final spot on the Olympic team. "The fourth spot is technically coaches discretion," Stassel said.

While he waits to see what happens, Stassel had this to say to his fans back home in Alaska. "Thank you everybody for the support," Stassel told KTUU. "I appreciate it and let's keep it going."
