Anderson defends Olympic gold in blustery slopestyle final

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. Canadian Laurie Blouin earned silver with 76.33 points, while Finland's Enni Rukajarvi won bronze with 75.38 points.

But an even bigger threat may come from Marino, who was the first woman to land a double in a slopestyle competition in 2016, and placed second behind Anderson in the 2017 slopestyle rankings.

Anderson fought through it, though, taking the lead through the first runs with what proved to be the eventual victory score of 83.00 thanks in large part to her ability to improvise in the air against the wind.
