U.S. skier Devin Logan takes silver, Dara Howell claims first women’s slopestyle gold

2 Comments

Dara Howell created some buzz by claiming that Canada could sweep the ski slopestyle to match the U.S. two golds in the snowboard side. She held up her end of the bargain with an impressive gold run on Tuesday, taking it with a 94.20 score.

Howell didn’t even need to put together a second run, but she did so anyway, essentially taking a victory lap.

The United States still made it on the podium, as Devin Logan won silver with a 85.40.

That proclamation looks even better because Howell’s countrywoman also got on the podium, although it wasn’t the expected contender in Kaya Turski, who bowed out in the qualifying round and separated her shoulder. Instead, Kim Lamarre was the one got there, taking bronze.

Lamarre wasn’t far behind Logan with an 85.00 score.

Beyond the competition, Olympic Talk is awaiting updates on Yuki Tsubota’s condition. The Canadian skier needed help off the course after a nasty fall that appeared to result in a serious injury.
