Gu, who has already bagged one gold and one silver in the Chinese capital, set the standard in qualifying with a first-run score of 93.75 before bettering it with 95.50 on her second attempt.

The 18-year-old, who in 2019 switched from representing the US to China, will compete last in the running order in Friday's 12-woman final.

Canada's Rachael Karker finished second in qualifying on 89.50, while Estonia's Kelly Sildaru was third on 87.50.
