In her second Olympics, freeskier Brita Sigourney won her first medal.
In the women’s halfpipe final at Phoenix Snow Park on Tuesday, Sigourney scored a 91.60 in her final run to take the bronze. Canadian Cassie Sharpe won gold (95.80) and Marie Martinod of France took silver (92.60)
Sigourney, 28, came into these Olympics after winning silver in the X Games last month. It was her fourth X Games medal in an injury-plagued career.
Sigourney was joined in the final by U.S. teammates Maddie Bowman and Annalisa Drew. Bowman, the 2014 Olympic medalist, fell on her last run but was able to walk off the course. Drew finished fourth.
It was the 11th medal overall for the U.S. team and first since Nick Goepper won silver in men's slopestyle skiing on Sunday.
