    An anxious few days ahead for New Zealand freeskier Ben Barclay as he waits to see if he's selected for the Beijing Winter Olympics

    An anxious few days ahead for New Zealand freeskier Ben Barclay as he waits to see if he's selected for the Beijing Winter Olympics


    Barclay has finished a career-best second at the final Slopestyle World Cup in France overnight.

    It's secured his place in the top 30 to meet the IOC selection criteria, and he's now had two top-16 results to meet the NZOC criteria.

    Barclay admits he had his doubts he would make it.
