”This is just so fun,” Oakley said. ”I’m really just weirded out right now, not too sure about what’s going on, but it’s awesome. I just got told I was going to worlds yesterday, so this has been a great couple days. I’m processing it still, and we still have one more day of competition, so maybe things can get even better!”

Kingsbury scored 90.25 points. Australia’s Matt Graham was second. Patrick Deneen of Cle Elum, Washington, was third.
