Olympics Freestyle

Rowan Cheshire qualified for Tuesday’s ski halfpipe final at the Winter Olympics on Monday in ninth place.

The 22-year-old crashed in training and did not compete in Sochi four years ago as a result, belatedly making her Great Britain bow at the Phoenix Snow Park in Pyeongchang.

She scored 74.00 for her first of two qualification runs, good enough to advance as one of 12 qualifiers led by Cassie Sharpe of Canada, who was awarded a best of 93.40.

Aimee Fuller was 25th of 26 riders in the snowboard Big Air competition, with a best score of 25.00, as Austria’s Anna Gasser advanced to Friday’s final as the leader with 98.00, two short of a perfect score.
