Anthony wins gold for Australia

Jakara Anthony has broken a 12-year draught by winning gold for Australia at the Beijing Winter Olympics.


It's history for Anthony by claiming Australia's first gold medal in the women's moguls.


The 23-year-old needed to beat a score of 80.12 posted by American Jaelin Kauf the second last skier to make it into the super final.


Anthony held her nerve scoring 81.29 to become Australia's sixth Winter Olympic champion.


It was the second medal for Australia following Tess Coady's bronze in the women's slopestyle.
