ASPEN, Colo. — Bend's Janna Meyen-Weatherby finished in eighth place Sunday in the women's snowboard slopestyle event of the Winter X Games.

Finland's Enni Rukajarvi won the event with a score of 92.66. Britain's Jenny Jones finished second (89.33), and Jamie Anderson, of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., was third (86).

In slopestyle, riders are judged on tricks performed down a course of jumps and rails. Scores are based on the degree of difficulty and execution of each trick.

According to espn.com, Meyen-Weatherby looked as stylish as ever riding through the course, but she could not put together a solid run. She finished with a best-run score of 46.33.

Meyen-Weatherby, 33, who recently announced that she plans to retire after the 2012 season, won four consecutive X Games gold medals in slopestyle from 2003 to 2006. She won the bronze medal last year.
