America's Clark leads halfpipe women's qualifying

Posted: Updated:

American Kelly Clark led the women in Olympic halfpipe qualifying, with some other gold-medal winners right behind her.
Clark, the 2002 Olympic champion, scored a 95 on her first run, to advance to Wednesday evening's finals. She'll be joined there by the last two gold medalists, Australian Torah Bright in 2010 and American Hannah Teter in 2006.
All cruised easily through the first round on a slushy halfpipe in temperatures approaching 50 degrees.
Others moving straight to the final: Queralt Castellet of Spain, Sophie Rodriguez of France and Cai Xuetong of China.
American Kaitlyn Farrington scored an 87.5 in the semifinals and will be one of the 12 women in the final.
Her U.S. teammate, Arielle Gold, did not start after hurting her shoulder in practice.
