ASPEN, Colo. - Canada's Kaya Turski captured her fourth Winter X Games gold medal in women's ski slopestyle Sunday.

The Montreal native, who was competing just five months after having knee surgery on her anterior cruciate ligament, scored 91.33 on her second run to cruise to first place.

That placed Turski ahead of American Maggie Voisin (90.00) and teammate Kim Lamarre of Quebec City.

Dara Howell of Huntsville, Ont., finished fourth with a score of 84.00 while Yuki Tsubota of Whistler, B.C. was eighth at 75.33.

All four skiers are on Canada's freestyle team heading to next month's Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
