The slopestyle event will take centre stage during Sunday's 2018 Winter Olympics snowboarding, as the men's finals and women's qualifying will both take place.

Langland's railwork is impressive, but it's her style that makes her stand out from the competition.

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. She would have to wait to see if that score would hold up, but none of her competitors came close. American Jamie Anderson took gold, while Finnish Enni Rukajarvi took bronze.

The team won the gold for ice dancing at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and silver at the 2010 Sochi games. Carolina Kostner finished in second in the ladies short program with 75.1 points.

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. The Austrian star fell in the final and failed to clear 52.00 with either of her runs.

Anderson's gold marks Team USA's second gold medal of PyeongChang 2018 after snowboarder Red Gerard won gold over the weekend. Officials made a decision to hold a two-run final on Monday morning.

She will compete in big air, scheduled for February 23, which makes its Olympic debut in PyeongChang.
