Olympia, Freestyle-Halfpipe: Eileen Gu again Olympic champion

Mission meets: Ski-freestyle star Eileen GU has won its second Olympiagold in Beijing in Beijing in her third competition. The native Californian starting for China was not beating gold in Big Air and Silver in Slopestyle in their special discipline Halfpipe. Thus, GU was the first freestyler at the same winter games three times on the podium.

“It was two weeks with the most intense highlights and top points I’ve ever experienced,” said Gu: “My life has changed forever.”

After three passes on Friday, the 18-year-old with 95.25 points was clearly before the Canadian duo from Pyeongchang Olympic champion Cassie Sharpe (90.75) and Vice World Champion Rachael Karker (87:25). Gu, who had already considered the qualification superior, already sat down at the top after the first run and increased again in the second.

Sabrina Cakmakli (Partenkirchen) landed after three subdued trips as twelfth (54.00) in the last place. “Of course I’m mega, mega disappointed,” she said in ZDF: “It was not just today, it was mega windy.” The training in the morning was “catastrophic”.
