Despite not qualifying in first place, she was still the one most likely to take the top spot. A fairly conservative run – backside air, frontside 1080, cab 720, frontside 900, McTwist – put her ahead of the rest of the field.
“Top qualifier Maddie Mastro might feel hard done by, after landing an interesting seven-hit run”
At times it wasn’t the prettiest, and a mere five hits seems low in such a massive pipe, but the judges were happy to hand her the threepeat.
Top qualifier Maddie Mastro might feel hard done by, after landing an interesting seven-hit run that included a seatbelt grab on the backside wall, a Haakonflip and a crippler, but it’ll only make her more determined to tidy up her routine for next winter.
Taking third place was Japan’s Haruna Matsumoto, whose final run had the spins (including a frontside 1080) but lacked the grabs and the amplitude to challenge the Americans.
