Clark, Bright, Farrington & Teter among those set to compete in Women’s Olympic Halfpipe Final

Kelly Clark, Torah Bright, Hannah Teter, Kaitlyn Farrington & more set to take on the Women's Olympic Halfpipe Final — see full results from qualification and semifinals, here.


After qualification wrapped, veteran Olympians Clark, Bright, and Teter all moved directly into the night’s finals, accompanied by Queralt Castellet (ESP), French rider Sophie Rodriguez, and China’s Xuetong Cai.

The top three women from each of the two qualifying heats secured their spots in finals right off the bat, while the rest of the field, which sadly excluded Arielle Gold due to a shoulder injury she suffered in practice, moved on to semifinals for another chance to make finals.

US sweetheart Kaitlyn Farrington took the top spot in semis, dropping an 87.50 on her first run. 5 of the 6 women who made it through from semis to finals earned their way with their first run, with all but Rana Okada falling on their second runs. One run was enough, however, to secure them a chance to put down medal runs in tonight’s Women’s Olympic Halfpipe Final.
