Britons James Woods and Isabel Atkin both won slopestyle bronze medals at the Freestyle Ski & Snowboard World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain.

Atkin arrived in Spain in a confident mood having won her first-ever World Cup gold in Silvaplana earlier in the month.

And she carried that form over into the World Championships as she followed up her third place in Saturday's qualification by finishing in the same position 24 hours later with a score of 83.20.

Gold went to Tess Ledeux of France with a score of 85.60, while Swede Emma Dahlstrom was second on 83.80, while fellow Brit Madison Rowlands was 17th.

Despite Woods leading after round two, the men's event was won by Mcrae Williams with a score of 93.80, with fellow American Gus Kenworthy claiming silver with 91.80 points.
