New Zealand snowboarder Zoi Sadowski-Synnott has revealed she has a new trick she wants to bring out at the Beijing Winter Olympics which start later this week - but the conditions may not allow her to try it.

The 20-year-old is the in-form free-boarder heading into the Games after picking up two gold medals at the recent X-Games in Colorado.

Sadowski-Synnott will compete in both the Slopestyle and Big Air events over the next week - with her first run on Saturday.

The 20-year-old won bronze in the Big Air in Pyeongchang four years ago.

She landed landed a couple of new tricks at the X-Games and told Glen Larmer she needed to bring those out then, rather than saving them for the Olympics.
