The women's snowboard slopestyle event at the Winter Olympics continues to be plagued by the fierce winds blowing through Phoenix Snow Park with the final delayed on Monday. After winning at the event's Olympic debut in Sochi, she remains the only woman to win gold in the event. With strong winds gusting throughout the competition, Anderson took the lead on her first run with a score of 83.00 and it was enough.

Only five riders made it down the first run without falling in the difficult conditions, which also included hard snow, with Anderson scoring 83.00 points to give her an nearly 10-point advantage heading into the second run.

Tennell next will take the ice February 20 for the individual ice dance event and again February 23 for the ladies' free skate final.

The qualification round was scheduled to take place Sunday but was cancelled due to high winds. Anna Gasser won three X Games gold medals last year―while injuries have held her back this season, she'll still be a force to be reckoned with. The majority of athletes experienced at least one fall per run, including Anderson on her second. Officials chose to hold a two-run final on Monday morning.

This is the first Olympics for both Marino, 20, and Langland, 17, and the two talented snowboarders will also compete in the brand-new big air discipline.
