It's the United States and the rest of the world when it comes to the snowboarding slopestyle competition at the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Jamie Anderson is golden again.

Sochi gold medalist Jamie Anderson of the United States leads after the first round with a score of 83.00 points, nearly 10 more than Norway's Silje Norendal.

Jamie Anderson celebrates winning gold in women's snowboard slopestyle at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 12, 2018 in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Anderson's second Olympic gold is the latest feat in a long career of success that saw her win her first X Games medal in 2006 at age 15.

But an even bigger threat may come from Marino, who was the first woman to land a double in a slopestyle competition in 2016, and placed second behind Anderson in the 2017 slopestyle rankings.

One of those snowboarders tonight will be Austria's Anna Gasser, who many of these so called experts have as a favorite to take home the gold.

The final will still be held Monday (Sunday night in the U.S.), but all 27 athletes will now compete in the final, and it will be a two-run format.

Many riders delayed the start of their second runs on the top of the hill, waiting to time it between the gusts of wind.

It wasn't all disastrous, however, as Blouin and Rukajarvi dazzled in their second showings and knocked Jenson and Norendal from the podium.
