The key to Anderson's win was the sheer variety of maneuvers achieved during the com

petition. During her final run, she nailed spins in all four directions! Anderson nailed a half cab 5-0, frontside 720, switch backside 540, and finished with a huge 540 on the final jump. This epic performance propelled her from second to first place ahead of O'Brien.

“I don’t even have words!” exclaimed Anderson. “I really lifted my last jump and I knew that I needed my frontside 7 in my run, but I was having a hard time with it during training. I knew it was important to spin four ways and I am so thankful to be here. This is such a nice personal redemeption for me and this is what I wanted to do. The course was really fun too.”

Spencer O'Brien followed in second place with a score of 90.00, while Enni Rukajarvi rounded out the podium in third place with a score of 85.25.
