Australian aerial skier Laura Peel has produced the highest scoring jump of the season to win gold at the World Cup aerial skiing event in Le Relais, Canada.

The double World Champion was again the only female competitor to jump spectacular triple back somersaults, scoring a huge 109.15 points with her lay-full-full jump to record the eighth World Cup victory of her career.

Second place went to American Ashley Caldwell who scored 93.06 points, with Ukrainian Anastasiya Novosad rounding out the podium in third with 90.59 points.

Peel’s teammate Danielle Scott also had a strong event and was unlucky not to land on the podium in fourth place. Scott had the highest scoring jumps in both qualifications and the first round of finals, and in the super final medal round scored 89.18 with her triple twisting double back somersault to just miss the podium by 1.41 points.
