Summary

With Kelly Clark (2002) and Hannah Teter (2010) the USA team had two of the previous gold medalists in this event. Australian Torah Bright, the 2006 champion, was back as well, and was uniquely competing in three snowboarding events at Sochi – halfpipe, slopestyle, and boarder-cross. At the recent Winter X-Games, the Americans had swept the medals, with Clark winning the title, followed by Chloe Kim, who had not even made the US Olympic team, and Kaitlyn Farrington winning the bronze medal. Of those four favorites, Farrington went down first in the finals and put up big numbers, and then had to stand by and watch to see if Clark, Teter or Bright could better her marks. On her second run, Farrington posted 91.75 and Bright came the closest, scoring 91.50 which brought her the silver medal behind Farrington. Clark came through for bronze as Teter placed fourth. For Clark it was her third medal, making her the first snowboarder to win three medals in the sport at the Olympics.
