Oliveras Argibay, meanwhile, led a European podium sweep with eight attempts and 122 centimetres.
France’s Maëliss Conan finished second with 120cm and Italy’s Elisa Paoli was third with 100cm.
Among today’s other winners was Russia’s Natalia Krykova, who came out on top in the women’s slide event.
Ukraine’s Bohdana Hotsko was the silver medallist and defending champion Nichakan Chinupun of Thailand took the bronze.
Krykova’s fellow Russian Olga Fokina just missed out on the podium in fourth place, with some imperfections costing her.
In the men’s free jump, France’s Florian Petitcollin prevailed with 155cm.
He was followed by Italians Alessio Bianzale and Matteo Pallazzi, who finished in the silver and bronze medal positions respectively after both registering 140cm.
