COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) -- Jamie Anderson moved closer to wrapping up a spot on the U.S. Olympic snowboarding team Friday, finishing first in slopestyle qualifying at the U.S. Grand Prix.

Anderson, a four-time Winter X Games champion, is trying for back-to-back wins in Olympic selection events. She won the Dew Tour last week.

She posted a 96.0 in qualifying and if she is the top American finisher in Sunday's final, she'll wrap up one of the two available slopestyle spots on the U.S. team with three qualifying events still remaining.
