The race for the men’s aerials Crystal Globe will go down to the wire after Ukraine’s Dmytro Kotovskyi moved to the top of the standings with victory at the International Ski and Snowboard Federation Freestyle Ski World Cup event in Swiss resort Engadin.

Kotovskyi overcame Swiss title rival Noé Roth to take gold, meaning there are just two points separating the top two freestyle skiers going into the season finale, scheduled to be held in Kazakhstan capital Almaty on March 19.

It was a thrilling penultimate event of the season in Engadin as Kotovskyi pulled off a stunning full-triple full-full to score 136.76 points.

Roth, who had previously led the aerials standings, did all he could to achieve success on home snow but his double full double full-full for 133.11 was not enough to overtake the Ukrainian as he had to settle for silver.

Christopher Lillis of the United States secured his second podium of the season when he notched 128.00 following a double full double full-full for bronze.

Danielle Scott of Australia has moved a step closer to capturing the women’s aerials Crystal Globe with success in Engadin.

The Australian made the most of a bad day at the office for Canada’s Marion Thenault to come out on top.

A double full-full saw Scott record 98.70 as she claimed her third World Cup win of the campaign.

With Thenault, who is second in the World Cup standings, finishing down in 16th position, Scott is on the brink of sealing the overall title.

Scott needs only nine points at the final event in Almaty to claim the Crystal Globe.

It was an Australian one-two in Engadin as Laura Peel landed a lay-full-full to seal silver with 94.65.

Newly-crowned world champion Kong Fanyu of China rounded out the podium places when she bagged bronze with a score of 92.00 for her double full-full.
