The 21 year old from Barwon Heads in Victoria, won qualifications and the first round of finals with a huge score of 80.92 points. In the top six super final, Anthony finished in the silver medal position, 0.84 points behind the event winner, Perrine Laffont of France, who is undefeated after six events this season. Rounding out the podium in third was Justine Dufour-Lapointe of Canada.
“I am pretty happy with how I skied”, Anthony commented in the finish area after her run.
"I managed to get lots of the finicky little bits and pieces that I have been trying to hone in on the last couple of days, especially in the first final run I managed to get it all together and put down a few high quality runs when it mattered most.”
“I had some really close calls this season, so to finally be back on the podium is a great feeling, knowing that I am doing the right stuff and working towards where I want to be.”
“My new back mute jump is going pretty well for me, I think I did a pretty good job with it tonight, its actually really helped a lot of other aspects of my run as well so I am really happy with the progression and can’t wait to see how it goes.”
This result is Anthony’s sixth World Cup medal of her career (1 gold, 4 silver and 1 bronze), and continues her great form in the past 12 months which also included silver at the 2019 World Championships on the same Deer Valley course.
Australia’s PyeongChang silver medallist, Matt Graham, finished in fifth place, his fourth top six super final performance of the season.
Sophie Ash qualified for the third World Cup final of her career, finishing in 13th place, with other Australian results including James Matheson in 19th, Cooper Woods-Topalovic 28th, Madii Himbury 30th, Claudia Gueli 31st, Brodie Summers 39th and Ben Matsumoto 45th.
With seven events remaining on the FIS World Cup tour, Anthony is currently ranked second in the world, with Graham in fourth place.
