ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Feb. 10) - Patrick Deneen skied his way into the medal finals, ending up sixth in the Olympic moguls competition at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. Canada's Alex Bilodeau made history, becoming the first freestyle athlete to repeat gold. His teammate Mikael Kingsbury won silver with Russia's Alexandr Smyshlyaev lighting up the crowd with bronze.

Deneen was on the bubble in the round of 12 when Canada's Philippe Marquis dropped to eighth, paving the way for Deneen to climb into the medals round. "The Canadians have a few really strong skiers and today they showed that," said Deneen. "The course is pretty crazy. It's a little different than it was yesterday and we're having to adapt to that each time. It's part of the sport though and it's something we know and adapt to as much as we can. The course didn't freeze last night like we wanted and it was warmer today which definitely had an affect on the hill."

Aerials training continued on Tuesday. The ladies compete on the 14th and the men on the 17th.
