I spoke with Spencer in January, she said her friends would be up watching and having 'Spencer watching parties'
Here we go! Spencer O'Brien on the course!
The rails are a good chance to shake the nerves
Just a touch down on that second to last kicker, she'll need a second run shot
It's all good, she can channel Mark McMorris. Don't worry.
This course is so unforgiving, you really have to be in control the entire way.
The judges have shown that they want perfection from these riders.
Snowboarding culture is so chill. Fans having the best time at the bottom of the course.
Next up is rider #10, Jamie Anderson of the US.
There are 12 women in the final. Top score from either of the two runs wins.
So Spencer O'Brien still has a shot. One good run. That's all it takes.
Anna Gasser, the last rider is now re-strapping in to re-start her run.
Anna Gasser of Austria up next
Clean on the rails and...sticks first kicker.
Not the smoothest run for Anna Gasser.
O'Brien sits in second last position after run 1.
Ok Spencer is just chilling, waiting for her second shot. It amazes me how collected freestyle athletes are.
And Norendal goes down hard. She's ok, but getting out of her board.
Looks like she missed the grab.
That'll definitely count her out of the medals.
