Team China sensation Gu Ailing grabbed the freeski Big Air title from France's Tess Ledeux with her last jump. Ledeux had set the benchmark of 94.5 points on her first run but failed to improve on her final score due to a flaw on the landing during her last attempt.

Just moments after Ledeux finished her competition, Gu and bronze medalist Mathilde Gremaud of Switzerland came together to console Ledeux, who lost her father last year.

"We were going through the emotions at the end," Gu said. "I won because of them, because they had inspired me so much and made me who I am. I just wanted to express my gratitude. We are all out here to do this together."
