Chinese teenager Gu Ailing Eileen claimed her second gold medal of the 2021 Freestyle Ski and Snowboarding World Championships, adding the freeski slopestyle title to her halfpipe crown.
The 17-year-old arrived in Aspen, USA, having topped the superpipe and slopestyle ranks at January's X Games at the same venue, and soared to her first world gold in the halfpipe discipline.
A day later Gu raced out of the blocks in the slopestyle final, with her first run score of 84.23 enough for victory.
