Chloe Kim Wins Back-To-Back Gold in Beijing… On First Run!

Chloe posted the highest score of the day on her first run, and then not settling for the 94.00, went for cab 1260s (never landed in a contest by a woman) on her second and third run but failed to put them down. The rest of the field put down solid runs, but none of them could top Chloe’s first drop. Queralt Castellet claimed silver after scoring a 90.00 on her second run, which is the first medal in 5 olympics for the rider from Spain. Japan’s Sena Tomita rounded out the podium in third with a 88.25, continuing her solid year on the contest circuit after a gold at X Games!

Other highlights on the day included Xuetong Cai’s first hit method, who ended up in 4th, Brooke D’Hondt and Elizabeth Hosking putting up for Team Canada (the first two top ten finishers ever for the country), and Jiayu Liu making her country proud with a solid showing in finals.
