Kaya Turski of Canada can win an unprecedented quadruple crown in ladies slopestyle on Tuesday, 11th February 2014 at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park when the event will celebrate its Olympic debut.

Turski is currently the reigning champion in the three major competitions in ladies’ slopestyle - X Games (2014), X Games Europe (2013) and World Championships (2013) - and can complete a quadruple crown by winning Olympic gold.

Other medal hopes are Anna Segal of Australia, who won the world title in 2011, Tiril Sjaastad Christiansen of Norway, who won the X Games in 2013 and current FIS World Cup leader Lisa Zimmermann of Germany.

Christiansen is 18 years and 310 days old on the day of the final and can become the youngest Olympic gold medallist in Freestyle Skiing, beating Justine Dufour-Lapointe’s (CAN) record, which she set at 19 years and 321 days in the ladies moguls on 8th February.
