Scotland's Kirsty Muir became Britain’s first ever female Big Air Olympic medallist when she won silver at the 2020 Youth Olympic Games.

Muir took second place behind China’s Ailing Eileen Gu, who pipped her to gold at the last minute.

15-year-old Muir was in first place going into the last run in the final in the Villars Winter Park until Gu put down a score of 81.5 in her final run to bring her total points tally to 171.25 and climb to the top spot.

Muir was the final athlete out of the gate knowing a score of 89 or more clinch gold.

However, the Scot came just 1.25 points short of the Chinese athlete, with a total of 170, but she had no regrets about her performance.

"I am just so delighted – Gu had some amazing runs and she is a really great skier," Muir said.

"All the girls were amazing and I was just happy to get the runs down - It is definitely a competition between friends and we support each other and hope everyone does their best.”

Muir became GB's second-ever Big Air Olympic medallist following Billy Morgan, who won bronze at PyeongChang in 2018 and she was rewarded by being nominated as Team GB's flagbearer at the Closing Ceremony.
