Lydia Lassila has won Gold for Australia at the Winter Olympics.
The Women’s Aerial jumper has come back from a knee reconstruction to take the Gold, defeating two Chinese competitors who had to settle for Silver and Bronze.
Lassila was secured of a Silver by the second last jump but the leader from China, was yet to jump -only to fall on the landing.
She becomes the second Aussie after Alisa Camplin to ever win the event.
Aussies Jacqui Cooper finished fifth and Elizabeth Gardner finished twelfth.
The win takes our medal tally to 2 gold and 1 silver, the best result for Australia at a Winter Olympics.
