Winter Olympics 2018: Mogul skier Britteny Cox chasing gold

Cox raised her arms after finishing her final run of the Games, possibly more in hope than triumph, but will leave her third straight Olympic campaign empty handed.

Not in the kind of form that saw her win seven World Cups and a world championship the previous season, the moguls skier took to her final run at Bokwang Phoenix Park with the speed and aggression that had seemingly been missing in recent weeks.

Cox eyeing gold tonight.

Gold was taken by France's Perrine Laffont, scoring 78.65 as snow fell in -12 degree temperatures in Pyeongchang on Sunday, with Justine Dufour-Lapointe of Canada second and Kazakhstan's Yulia Galysheva winning bronze.

Two Australian women have made the final six of the women's moguls at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but Britt Cox and Jakara Anthony have finished out of the medals in a tight finish.

She recovered well but not well enough.

In mogul skiing, athletes are scored out of 100 points, with the breakdown coming from turns 60 points, air 20 points and speed 20 points.

"My goal for this entire week and for tonight in particular was to go for it", she said.

"I skied fast, I jumped big and for that I am super proud".

Cox - one of our medal favourites - finished 5th. That made her one of the youngest Australians to compete in this arena.

Very little was given away until towards the end of January, when coach Steve Desovich pulled her out of a World Cup event to do more strength and conditioning training.

She was through repechage as the third strongest competitor and was placed fourth and fifth through the first two finals.

But he too couldn't pinpoint how it had gone wrong.

"I'm super excited about that", she said.
