Of the six ladies that tackled the Superpipe in the finals – Kelly Clark was always going to be a strong contender; and despite the efforts of young challengers like Chloe Kim – she came out of the competition just ever so slightly on top. In fact, only a gap of half a point stood between the two riders.
In third place – and with the second piece of silverware for the family, was Arielle Gold. Securing the podium with a clear bit of headroom separating her from fourth place Xuetong Cai. But in the end it was undoubtedly a battle between the seasoned experience of Kelly, who in her own words put down a “stock run”, and up-and-coming Chloe who at 14 is already hot on her heels!
3rd Place – Arielle Gold
2nd Place – Chloe Kim
1st Place – Kelly Clark
