Hannah Teter wins silver, Kelly Clark bronze in women's halfpipe
There were 11 entrants in the women's halfpipe final Thursday night at the Vancouver Winter Olympics (there are usually 12, but one, Queralt Castellet of Spain, had to withdraw because of an injury). The U.S. had four of the 11 entrants, so odds for a medal were pretty good. But gold wasn't meant to be.
Gretchen Bleiler of the U.S. fell on both of her runs. Elena Hight was in eighth after the first run, then crashed in the second.
