The old saying that good things come in threes was evident this past weekend, as etnies Girl skaters Evelien Bouilliart, Kristina Westad and Ianire Elorriaga swept the top three spots at the first stop of the etnies Girl PUSH JAM 2006, held at the etnies European Open in Munich, Germany.

Evelien, who won the contest last year, defended her title with a solid first place finish. Known for her fearless and stylish skating, the 16-year-old from Aalter, Belgium, killed the rails with feebles, lipslides and smith grinds, and even pulled out a frontside bluntslide during the best trick session.
Kristina, a newcomer hailing from Molde, Norway, who is nicknamed “The Viking,” came with a big bag full of tricks that put her in second place. Highlights included 360 flips over the hip, kickflipping the London gap and frontside boardslides on the rail.
Ianire, a two-time European Champion from Bilbao, Spain, rounded out the etnies Girl sweep by taking third place. She skated the course full throttle, and one of her highlights was a backside disaster on the big quaterpipe.
Congratulations to Evelien, Kristina and Ianire!
The next stop of the etnies Girl PUSH JAM 2006 will take place at the etnies Bowlmasters in Brixlegg, Austria, on May 26-28.
