However, she displayed maturity beyond her years in what transpired after.
As Gu waited at the bottom with the gold medal all but draped around her neck, she had to hold steady as French youngster Tess Ledeux was about to complete her final run.
In her final run, Gu had stolen Ledeux’s lead and it meant that the French star had to pull out all the tricks in the last run of the event.
However, it was not to be and Ledeux was understandably devastated as she sat down in the snow after the event.
But in a display of outstanding sportsmanship, Gu and bronze medallist Mathilde Gremaud rushed over to console her.
The gesture drew plenty of admiration online, as it was yet another demonstration of sporting camaraderie on show in Beijing.
The competitors in the women’s slopestyle held their own similar moment of sportsmanship, although it was more in a state of euphoria rather than devastation.
Kiwi star Zoi Sadowski-Synnott was the last rider in the event, and it was a run that earned her the gold medal.
When her scores were announced, a group of her competitors — including Australian bronze medallist Tess Coady — raced over to the New Zealander and tackled her to the snow.
