Medals awarded in women’s ski halfpipe

Canadian Cassie Sharpe won gold in the women’s ski halfpipe final at the PyeongChang Olympics.

France’s Marie Martinod won silver with Brita Sigourney, 28, of Carmel, California, taking bronze.

Sharpe, the top qualifier for the event’s final, posted the best first run of the three-run final with a 94.40, followed by Martinod with 92.20 and Sigourney’s 89.80.

Those standings held up through the second run, with Sharpe upping the ante by ending her second run with 1080 that saw her post a score of 95.80.

Fourth in the standings after the first two runs, Annalisa Drew, 24, of Andover, Massachusetts, briefly jumped into third place following her final run score of 90.80, but was knocked back into fourth after Sigourney locked up bronze with her final run.

Martinod then fell on her final run and Sharpe commenced a victory lap with the gold already in her pocket but fell halfway through her run.

American Maddie Bowman, the 2014 gold medalist, crashed at the end of all three of her runs in the final and finished in last place.

The 24-year-old South Lake Tahoe, California, native was skiing with a taped-up wrist from an injury suffered during a practice run earlier in the day.
