Woods did stumble and then crash in his second run, but the 26-year-old’s initial effort proved strong enough to qualify as one of seven skiers to score 90+.

  • Oscar Wester (Sweden) – 95.40
  • Andri Ragettli (Switzerland) - 95.00
  • Alex Beaulieu-Marchand (Canada) – 94.20

After a high-scoring qualification round, the 12 finalists will have three runs to showcase their skills in the pursuit for gold.
Meanwhile, Woods’ GB team-mate Tyler Harding failed to make the cut after scoring 20.00 and 21.00 in his two qualifying runs.
The 21-year-old took a tumble in both runs, in what was his first showing in the Winter Olympics.
