Julia Marino's love affair with Quebec City continued as the American topped the big air podium for the second year in a row.

In the fourth and final big air event of the 2018-19 Snowboard World Cup season, the 21-year-old racked up an overall score of 162.25 points to comfortably get the better of Canada's Laurie Blouin (157.50) and Slovakia's Klaudia Medlova (122.50).

Victory lifted Marino into seventh overall in the big air standings, with Japanese duo Reira Iwabuchi and Miyabi Onitsuka both finishing level on 2400 points at the top of the leaderboard.

Meanwhile, Belgium's Seppe Smits also secured a seventh-placed finish in the men's big air discipline with victory.

The 27-year-old, a two-time former slopestyle world champion, came top of the pile with a score of 175.75, with Finland's Kalle Jarvilehto (171.50) second and Switzerland's Jonas Boesiger (161.25) rounding off the podium.
