China's Eileen Gu won gold in the women's freeski halfpipe final on Friday — and it wasn't even close.
On a windy day at the Genting Snow Park, Gu posted a best score of 95.25, a full 4.5 points ahead of her nearest challenger, Canada's Cassie Sharpe in silver.
The win means Gu is the first athlete to win three medals in three different freestyle skiing disciplines at a single Games. An emotional Gu embraced her competitors as they posed for photos after the event.
Face of the Games: The Beijing 2022 Olympics have been a breakthrough moment for Gu as she became one of the biggest stars of the Games.
She took gold in the big air event last week and added silver in the freeski slopstyle event on Tuesday. Friday's gold medal will only help strengthen the Gu legend.
The American-born skier, born to a Chinese mother and American father, chose to represent China in 2019, and has seen her star soar since the start of what is a home Winter Olympics for her.
Her face is plastered across Chinese cities on advertisement boards and magazine covers and featured in promotional videos ahead of the Olympics showing Gu performing tricks midair and running on the Great Wall.
