Sitting in gold medal position with three aerial skier competitors left to come down the hill, the 2015 World Champion was very unlucky not to take home the second World Championship medal of her career, with her back full-double full scoring 87.77, putting her just 1.11 behind the second and third place finishers who tied with a score of 89.88.
After jumping consistently in all rounds at the event, Peel commented.
"Overall it was a pretty good event, I was happy with the jumps that I did."
"Obviously I was disappointed to miss the podium, but I kind of did I what I set out to do, so that was good."
