Silver, bronze for U.S. in ladies halfpipe



The script didn't go as expected, with falls and mistakes along the way, but Hannah Teter and Kelly Clark still managed to give the United States a 2-3 finish Thursday night in Olympic ladies halfpipe, with Australia's Torah Bright pulling out the gold medal with a clutch final run at Cypress Mountain.

Gretchen Bleiler of Aspen and Kelly Hight, the other two Americans in the finals, couldn't complete either of their final runs and missed out on any shot at medals.

But the silver and bronze for Teter and Clark gave the U.S. four out of six medals for the two days of halfpipe, and the Americans upped their overall lead in the medal standings to 17-11 over Germany with five gold, five silver and seven bronze.
