This will definitely be one of the greatest moments in all Olympic history and probably the best performance in this year's Olympics.
The Czech is only the fifth person to win gold in two different events at the Winter Olympics.
Some might call her double-gold the most remarkable accomplishment of any Winter Games given how hard it is to win on skis or board, never mind both; and all achieved by someone who sprinkles a little eccentricity on top of a unique sporting triumph.
The Russians, seeking their first hockey gold since 1992, blanked the Czech Republic 3-0 to reach Sunday's championship contest, but were overshadowed by an unlkikely German league all-star squad that collected their nation's greatest ever hockey victory.
When Ester took to the slopes as a child, starting on skis and then strapping on a snowboard, her father Janek Ledecky - Czechs sometimes vary the last vowel of their family name depending on gender - recalled that he and his wife "were not pushy parents".
"A couple of months ago I couldn't even snowboard so it definitely feels great that I'm able to ride at my best and to put the tricks down", said Toutant.

The precipitation is expected to quickly end from south to north across the region, generally ending by late morning. Also, don't be shocked if you hear thunder - Augustyniak said thundersnow is possible between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.
Ledecka may be ranked a lowly 68th overall on the alpine World Cup circuit, but in the parallel giant slalom she is the reigning world champion.
A quarter-final victory over Daniela Ulbing was followed by a semi-final win against Hofmeister, who had pushed her all the way before stumbling. "I enjoyed every run and I'm very happy to be here and stand on the highest place on the podium". That came seven days after she won the super-G by 0.01 seconds - and shocked everyone, including herself.
"On the other hand, snowboarding helps me a lot in skiing because I just have one edge, just one chance". When countless people - too many to give a specific number, says the Olympic champion - told her to give up her ambitions of performing at an elite level in two sports, she held her ground and carried on.
"I'm really looking forward to get to Europe for different cooking because it's been quite a long time here". When she looked up at the scoreboard and saw the time, she froze.
When asked about the challenge of mastering two distinct styles, she said: "I don't know how to do just one".
It turns out Ledecka is also skilled at windsurfing - yet another Olympic event - which raises the question: Might she consider trying for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo?
