Winter Olympics: Jakara Anthony wins gold in women’s moguls

Jakara Anthony has ended a 12-year Winter Olympics gold-medal drought for Australia by claiming a dominant victory in the women’s moguls at the Beijing Games.

The 23-year-old Anthony scored 83.09 points in the six-woman super final.

American Jaelin Kauf (80.28) was second and Russian Anastasiia Smirnova (77.72) )was third.

Anthony dominated the two-day competition, posting the top score in all four rounds.

It marked the first time in Winter Olympics history that Australia had won more than one medal on a single day after Tess Coady claimed bronze in the women’s snowboard slopestyle earlier on Sunday.

Until Sunday, Australia’s most recent Winter Olympic champions were Torah Bright (snowboard halfpipe) and Lydia Lassila (women’s aerials) at the 2010 Vancouver Games,
