Zoi Sadowski-Synnott has successfully defended her X Games Slopestyle title.

Sadowski-Synnott won the gold medal at the prestigious invite-only event in Aspen, Colorado.

The 21-year-old Olympic champion has now won four X Games Slopestyle gold medals and it is her eighth X Games medal in total.

The weather was challenging in Aspen with light snow falling. Despite the challenging conditions, Sadowski-Synnott made quick work of the course, securing the top spot after her second run.

Tess Coady of Australia took the lead after the third run which bumped Sadowski-Synnott down into second place. With everything on the line for her fourth and final run, Sadowski-Synnott laced together a technical rail run that included a huge cab 270 gap onto the flat down. The move was enough for victory.

Coady claimed the silver medal, with Kokomo Murase of Japan in bronze medal position.
