Wind gust engulfs the half pipe course during the women's halfpipe qualifying at Phoenix Snow Park at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang South Korea Monday Feb. 12 2018

The final runs for the Women's Slopestyle snowboarding discipline will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11.

Anderson's gold marks Team USA's second gold medal of PyeongChang 2018 after snowboarder Red Gerard won gold over the weekend. Officials made a decision to hold a two-run final on Monday morning.

Sochi gold medallist Jamie Anderson of the United States leads after the first round with a score of 83.00 points, nearly 10 more than Norway's Silje Norendal. Finland's Sochi Olympic silver medallist Enni Rukajarvi and Austrian favourite Anna Gasser were among those to struggle. The qualifying heats were canceled because of poor weather, so the 25-women field advanced to a gold-medal showdown. Those qualifying runs had originally been scheduled for Sunday afternoon - but high winds changed that plan.

Anderson took the second run even though she didn't need it to win and fell on a jump.

Anderson posted a score of 83.00 in the first of her two runs then watched it hold up as rider after rider either crashed or bailed. 'It's a s-tshow, ' said Dutch rider Cheryl Maas.

Neither Jenson nor Norendal was able to complete a clean second run despite the fact each had a strong showing in the first.

The United States' Julia Marino was a threat to all three medalists, but she fell on her second run as well.

Anderson headed back to the top to see if anyone could catch her.
