Zoi Sadowski-Synnott claimed her first-ever Olympic Slopestyle Gold in Beijing today after putting down a super impressive run and stomping the biggest trick of the day on the last jump of her third and final run. The women’s slopestyle finals came right down to the wire, with the 20-year-old Kiwi claiming the highest score of the day (a 92.33, the only competitor to break 90.00) after landing a massive backside 1080 on the final kicker of the course.

British olympian Jenny Jones was slopeside to catch up with Zoi for the BBC’s coverage after her winning run. When asked how she held down that last trick Zoi said: “Honestly, I have no idea. I’m in complete disbelief!”
