"I ended up going with a lot safer of runs than I would have liked to but that's how the day panned out for me", O'Brien said.

While women's snowboard big air was a new addition for the 2018 Olympics, it has been a part of the Winter X Games and FIS Freestyle Ski and Snowboarding World Championships for a few years.

Anna Gasser of Austria won the first Olympic snowboarding big air gold medal on Thursday with a combined score of 185.00 from her two best runs.

Although O'Brien was disappointed in her own performance, she was happy to be among a field strong of competitors. I think it's the same thing as slopestyle. "This is going to be so big to watch".

The event has riders performing their best tricks off one big jump.

"It's really cool because we're the first ones to get to do it", said Enni Rukajarvi of Finland, who has already won bronze in the women's slopestyle at PyeongChang 2018. Unlike in slopestyle, where you take the best of your three runs, big air scoring combines the two best out of three runs.

Gasser was the top qualifier with score of 98. Anderson was the bronze medalist in big air at the Winter X Games and repeated as the gold medal victor in snowboard slopestyle earlier in the 2018 Olympics.

Below is the viewing information for the women's big air final and a preview for Wednesday's event.

"Even if you fell, if you went big and you fell, they'd all go 'Whooooo, '" she said. "I don't really need people to understand what we do, but just to enjoy it".

"I'm feeling unbelievable", said Gasser following her victory. "I was standing up there and I was like, 'This is so sick'".
