Summary

The format was changed slightly from 1998. As in 1998, there were two runs in both the qualifying and the final, but this time only the best score of the two runs in the final counted for the final placement. In the qualifying, the best six finishers from each run advanced to the final, where 12 competed. In the first round of qualifying, Kelly Clark (USA), the youngest competitor in the event at 18, posted the highest score, with defending champion, Nicola Thost (GER), placing fourth to also advance. The second qualifying run was led by Fabienne Reuteler (SUI) with the 1998 bronze medalist, Shannon Dunn-Downing (USA), in second. France’s Doriane Vidal posted the highest score in the first run of the final, with 43.0, followed by Clark with 40.8. But Clark’s second run score of 47.9 easily won her the gold medal, with Vidal taking silver, and the bronze going to Reuteler.
