The end of the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships was brought forward by a day because of the weather forecast, with the last gold medals in Bakuriani going to France's Tess Ledeux and the United States' Troy Podmilsak.

Today was due to be the penultimate day of competition in the Georgian resort with medals being decided in the freeski halfpipe, but organisers opted to bring forward tomorrow's scheduled freeski and snowboard big air finals because of weather conditions.

The first golds of the day went to Canada's Brendan Mackay and the US' Hanna Faulhaber in the freeski halfpipe on the Bakuriani Halfpipe course.

Mackay became the first Canadian to win halfpipe gold for 12 years in the men's event.

His 94.00 on the first run was beaten by Finland's Jon Sallinen on his final run with 95.75, but Mackay responded with a 97.25 to take gold.

Two-time Olympic medallist Alex Ferreira of the US earned third with 93.00.

In the women's event, 18-year-old Faulhaber surprised the field with a superb 95.75 on her final run to take gold.

Britain's Zoe Atkin had been in first place with 94.50 from her second run, but had to settle for silver, while Canada's Rachael Karker took bronze with 92.25 on her first effort in the final.

Back-to-back Olympic champion Anna Gasser of Austria took the women's snowboard big air gold on the Bakuriani Big Air course with 162.50 from her two scoring runs, with Japan's Miyabi Onitsuka second with 161.25 and Australia's Tess Coady third with 153.25.

The men's equivalent event was won by a Japanese athlete for the first time as Taiga Hasegawa dominated the competition, scoring 177.25 to finish 20 points clear of Norway's Olympic silver medallist Mons Røisland.

Nicolas Huber of Switzerland completed the podium with 150.50.

The last events of the Championships were in the freeski big air.

Beijing 2022 silver medallist Ledeux was crowned world champion for the second time in the discipline, bouncing back from a heavy crash in the slopestyle finals to score an unassailable 186.75.

Her third run featured her first successful switch left double cork 1260 in competition.

Sandra Eie of Norway notched 175.00 to place second, with Canada's Megan Oldham third in 174.00.

A high-quality men's final was won by 18-year-old Podmilsak, who had only qualified in the final spot.

He became the first skier in FIS freeski history to land a forward triple 2160 in competition, and his 187.75 was enough for gold.

Austria's Lukas Müllauer took silver with 184.50, while Olympic champion Birk Ruud of Norway was third with 183.50.

Five nations finished with three gold medals at the World Championships, with Austria topping the standings by virtue of their six silvers.
