Aussie Hope Emily Arthur Crashes Out In Halfpipe


PyeongChang: It wasn’t just Chloe Kim causing headaches for competitors in the snowboard halfpipe as Australian Emily Arthur crashed and took a heavy knock on her final run at the Winter Olympics.

Kim was first and daylight second at the Bokwang Phoenix Park ’pipe on Tuesday, the gulf in her ability compared to the opposition evidenced in her final run in which she logged 98.25 points.

China’s Jiayu Liu was second (89.75) and American Arielle Gold third (85.75).

Arthur (11th) had a more literal headache to contend with after she sought to boost her score on her third hit.

She looked to be heading for her top score after a modest 48.25 in her first run and a botched second effort.

But spinning a cab 540 she failed to smoothly deal with the landing and jarred her shoulder and face into the flat centre of the ’pipe.
