Jamie Anderson Wins Gold Medal for Snowboarding Slopestyle at Olympics 2018

Meet Anna Gasser — Austrian Snowboarder

Women's snowboard slopestyle qualifying cancelled

Anderson was one of the few riders in the final to navigate the tricky series of rails and jumps safely as the wind wreaked havoc on the field, turning the final nearly into a matter of mere survival. She had a 10-point lead ahead of Norway's Silje Norendal, who had 73.81 points, and Team USA teammate Jessika Jenson (72.26 points) after the first run. Even Anderson wasn't immune.

While she didn't land a clean run to finish, she was good enough for gold for the second straight Olympics.

Due to high winds Sunday, the event was delayed a day and cut down from its typical format, which is a two-run qualifier that narrows the field to 12 for a three-run final.

With the win, Anderson joins Red Gerard as America's two Olympic gold medalists in slopestyle; the US also swept the event in Sochi, where it was held for the first time at the Winter Olympics.




The majority of the rest of the field was not so fortunate.

Heading into the second run, wind conditions worsened and numerous snowboarders faltered on the second jump.

There was a particularly scary moment when Slovakia's Klaudia Medlova landed flat on her back after missing a grab during her first run but she did complete her second and finished 24th.

Only five of the 25 riders who attempted a run made it down the slope without a fall. At times the wind socks that lined the course were perpendicular to the ground and the second jump appeared to be particularly vulnerable to gusts. And while Blouin and Rukajarvi overcame first-run spills to reach the podium, Anderson's score was never really challenged.
