Games debutant Arthur, from Woronora Heights in the Sutherland Shire, lost control on her first run, and scored a 30.25, which put her in 15th.

She finished 13th, one place out of the final.

The news was better for Arthur, however, as she delivered the sixth-best run of the second qualifying round to jump into eighth place and qualify comfortably for the final, which will begin at midday (AEDT) on Tuesday.
