Winter Olympics: Anna Gasser wins women's big air final with last jump

Gasser needed something big, and the gold-medal favorite delivered.

The women's big air final was brought forward to today as high winds are forecast for tomorrow. However, those scores must come from two different tricks.

Gasser was extremely consistent throughout the competition. Anderson was the bronze medalist in big air at the Winter X Games and repeated as the gold medal victor in snowboard slopestyle earlier in the 2018 Olympics. With a solid score on the board, she then put down a backside double cork 1080 on her second attempt.

The 26-year-old scored 96.00 points with the final run of the day, giving her a combined total of 185.00 from her two best runs at the Alpensia Ski Jumping Centre.

For those reasons, Gasser gets the nod to collect her first Olympic gold medal.

The increase in profit from the prior half was expected to be in the range of NZ$35 million to NZ$40 million. A2 milk is credited as being easier to digest for people with lactose intolerance.

Anderson finished behind Gasser and Japan's Reira Iwabuchi just a few weeks ago at X Games Big Air, but her first two scores were good enough for first place after her third and final run.

Among those through to the final are the United States' Jamie Anderson and Canada's Laurie Blouin, who earned gold and silver, respectively, in the women's slopestyle in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Anderson joins Kelly Clark and Shaun White on a record three Olympic medals in snowboard.

New Zealand's Zoi Sadowski-Synnott took bronze thanks to a big score for her switch backside 900 on her second run.
