We’d seen Silje Norendal beat Jamie Anderson’s best run in Tignes, so we knew she had it in her. But the fact that she hadn’t really won anything massive since made us wonder whether this was a one off. In Saturday’s women’s slopestyle she showed us definitively that that wasn’t the case.
And while Jamie Anderson went for a 900 on her final run, she didn’t really look close to it. Which made us wonder, if Silje stomps her run in Sochi, does Jamie have the tricks to answer it?
Spencer O’Brien is of course the other woman to watch out for, but if we were betting men and fancied slightly longer odds than the favourite Anderson, it’s Silje we’d put our money on.
