Segal, 26, advanced to the final of the prestigious Dew Tour event in Breckenridge, USA, today with a strong second place in the semi- final.
The athlete who appears to be Segal’s main rival in tomorrow’s final is 18-year-old American Emilia Wint, who is competing at her home mountain.
Skiing in solid snow falls, Wint was the highest scorer in the two run 10 women semi-final format. She scored 87.50 points in her first run while Segal managed 82.50.
Fellow Aussie Russ Henshaw also did Australia proud by finishing fourth is his semi, earning a place in the final, headed by Britain’s James Woods, American Nick Goepper and Norwegian Adreas Hatveit.
