Hailey Langland advances to snowboard slope style finals at the 2022 Winter Olympics. The competition, which started in PyeongChang in 2018, will be televised live on NBC and Peacock. The women's event is one of the newest events in the Winter Olympics and has yet to earn a medal at an Olympic Games. Skiers navigate a course filled with obstacles and are judged on the tricks they complete. In the women's competition, Jamie Anderson, Julia Marino, and Hailey Langland will join two-time Olympians Katie Anderson and Hannah Gou. The women's snowboard slopestyle competition will be the final event of the Games. The course at Genting Snowpark is sculpted to be challenging and technical, and it has guardhouse features and a second twisted sister jump. The men's slopestyle competition will feature seven competitors: Hailey Langland, Julia Marino, and Jamie Anderson. All three will be in the 12-woman final. Reira Iwabuchi, the youngest member of the U.S. snowboard team, won the men's competition on Saturday, while Katie Anderson, who won the silver medal in the women's competition, won her first Winter Olympics gold medal in 2012. Earlier in the day, Jamie Anderson and Julia Marino advanced to the women's snowboard slopestyle finals.
They will face off in an eight-woman final. Both will compete for gold. During the evening, the men's slopestyle qualifier will be broadcast live on USA Network, and the downhill event will be televised on NBC. If you're unable to watch the finals, you can still catch the action on NBC and USA Network.
San Clemente's Winter Olympian, 21-year-old Hailey Langland, qualified for the women's snowboard slopestyle final at the Beijing Olympics. The final will be broadcast live tonight at 5:30 p.m. on USA Network and streaming on Peacock. #Olympics #Snowboard https://t.co/LTR43gF3Rd — San Clemente Times (@SCTimesNews) February 5, 2022
