After her first run, Jenson was in first place until Anderson took her first run. Jenson remained in the top three through much of the second round when Blouin landed in second place and bumped Jenson out of medal contention.

Windy conditions throughout the day added a level of difficulty to the competition, with many riders struggling to land their jumps.

Anderson, who also topped the podium in Sochi, now has two-consecutive gold medals in the women's slopestyle.
