It was a full on battle throughout all 3 runs for the women competing today in the X-Games Women's Park Finals! Nothing like we have ever seen before from these ladies.

On her first run AU's 13 yr old Sabre Norris took the lead while riding switch for a lot of her run and throwing down a flawless 540 above coping, but last years gold medalist, Brighton Zeuner had her game face on and wasn't having it - she charged ahead to secure her position in first with a jam-packed run with tricks on every wall she hit.

Nicole Hause, the hometown favorite, fell on run one and two but had a great third run much to the excitement of the crowd, but it just wasn't enough to land her on podium, unfortunately. Sakura Yosozumi wasn't even in podium position until her last run, which was flawless and bumped her up into bronze medal position.

Sabre and Brighton battled it out on runs two and three, but after Brighton scored a 90.33 on her second run, Sabre was unable to beat her score and had to settle for a well placed  silver medal - not too shabby for her first X-Games!

The level of skating was higher than we have seen in past years and it was awesome to watch - these ladies had the crowd on their feet!

Huge congrats to Brighton Zeuner who now has (at 14 yrs old) two gold medals back to back in X-Games women's park!
