Canadian world champion Spencer O'Brien will be leaving Sochi empty-handed after finishing 12th in the Olympic women's slopestyle Sunday.    

The Courtenay, B.C., snowboarder struggled in her first run, earning 30 points. She improved slightly in the second run, receiving 35 points.    

A devastated O'Brien lamented she let Canada down.    

"Sorry I'm just really disappointed right now,'' she told reporters. "I had a really hard year coming back from some injuries. I was really happy to be riding the way I was here. I was just really excited to be a part of Team Canada. Just after watching Mark yesterday, I was really inspired to just try really hard to bring home a medal.    

"I went for my hardest run and it didn't work out today. So I'm really disappointed and really sad that I let Canada down.''    

Several people took to social media to support O'Brien, including Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.    

 

American Jamie Anderson won gold with an impressive 95.25 on her second run, just beating Finland's Enni Rukajarvi, who had a 92.50.    

Britain's Jenny Jones scored an 87.25.    

Jenna Blasman of Kitchener, Ont., was eliminated from competition after finishing 11th in the semifinal at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
