Mitsuki Ono won Gold in the Women’s Snowboard Halfpipe for Japan at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lausanne 2020.

The reigning Junior World Champion showed her class throughout the competition, finishing top of the leaderboard in the two qualification runs and then all three of the runs in the final.

Ono’s best score came on her final run. Her 95.33 points saw her finish 10 points clear of her compatriot Manon Kaji. Switzerland’s Berenice Wicki took bronze.

The Halfpipe competition is a judged sport. Each competitor performs individual runs with several tricks, spins and flips through an inclined snow trough.

The results are calculated on the best out of three runs in final (top 12). Qualification will be held in a 2-run format.

The competitors will be judged on a combination of amplitude, technical difficulty, creativity and landing.
