Russia's women dominated the 2017 Winter Universiade freestyle skiing ski cross competition today, posting a 1-2-3 in the final.
It was Anna Antonova that took the gold medal at the Shymbulak Ski Resort here.
She narrowly beat compatriots Mayya Averyanova and Ekaterina Maltseva, who took second and third respectively in the big final.
Antonova, who studies at the Habarovsk State Academy of Economics and Law, finished third in the qualification phase before improving later in the day.
She won her semi-final before going on to take the gold medal.
The Czech Republic's Jiri Cech then celebrated winning the men's ski cross gold medal.
He beat Russia's Kirill Merenkov and Enrico Fromm of Switzerland in the big final, who took second and third respectively.
Due to the larger field of athletes in the men's ski cross competition, Cech had to come through a significant number of rounds to win the title.
The 23-year-old, who studies at the Czech Technical University in Prague, started the day poorly as he finished seventh in the qualification race.
It obviously did not affect his form though as he then went on a sensational run, winning every other race he was involved in.
