Drought ends: American women beat Canada 3-2 for gold

Share

Anna Gasser landed two different double cork 1080s to take the gold medal.

Progression was the name of the game in the big air final, and the format created some interesting strategy. Just missing the podium was the young Japanese phenom Reira Iwabuchi, after failing to land clean on two out of three runs.

Gasser was extremely consistent throughout the competition. Her first jump did not score.

Although Anderson will be disappointed to finish in second place, she did make history with her performance. "It just feels good", she said.

"I can't put it into words", defenseman Kacey Bellamy said. "I was like, 'No, I'm going to go full risk and if it works out then I deserve this medal'". Her score of 96 was the highest of the day and gave her a total of 185.00.

The Americans won the inaugural women's gold medal in 1998, but had not beaten Canada in the Olympics since. "I am just so thankful for the outcome".

It was the second straight overtime in the gold medal game for these two teams, but the first shootout in Olympic women's hockey history. Even though Anderson won the contest, the tricks she used in her run were dialed back from what she had hoped to use.

Jamie Anderson added to her medal count, wining a silver medal in Big Air with jumps that scored 90.00 and 87.25.

"As athletes we always want to do our best, so if you don't do your best you don't feel that good about it", O'Brien said. It's her second medal of these Olympics and the third medal of her career.
