Olympic Silver for Mike Riddle in Ski Halfpipe Debut

Mike Riddle

 

With constant wet snow adding to the drama, Ski Halfpipe made its Olympic debut at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park on Wednesday – and it didn’t disappoint.

Sitting sixth after the first run of the two-run finals, Sherwood Park, Alberta’s Mike Riddle came through with a big performance in his second run and almost caught first run leader David Wise of the USA. But it was good enough for a silver medal and another great showing for Canada.
