PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018: Jamie Anderson wins gold in extreme condition

 

New Delhi [India], Feb 12: The inhospitable carnage continued on the second run when only four competitors made it through unscathed with all but eight wiping out completely. Two of them, Canada’s Laurie Bloun (76.33) and Finland’s Enni Rukajarvi (75.38), posted scores that earned them silver and bronze respectively.

The conditions were not ideal but it changes so quick. When players were practising and even earlier this morning, it was really bad and they did delay it and did their best. The windswept carnage continued on the second run when only four competitors made it through unscathed with all but eight wiping out completely. Two of them, Canada’s Laurie Bloun (76.33) and Finland’s Enni Rukajärvi (75.38), posted scores that earned them silver and bronze respectively.

“I just kind of tried to stay in my zone, stay optimis tic. I knew there was wind, obviously, but who knows when there’s not going to be wind. I think we talked about maybe running in a couple of days, when it may have been calmer. I was kind of down for whatever. I just try to keep it neutral and let the officials make the call.”

The oppressive conditions delayed the start of the final by more than an hour, but organizers chose to push forward after Sunday’s washout, a decision that did not sit well with some competitors.
