STEAMBOAT SPRINGS- Arielle Gold crushed her final run to take the bronze medal in the Olympic Halfpipe with a score of 85.75.

"Coming in I knew I was going to need to land that run to be on the podium," she said. "I was committed to it all three runs. I felt pretty relaxed going into the third run. I knew I could let loose and do everything I could."

"It was a bittersweet position to be in knowing it was between Kelly (Clark) and I for the bronze medal," said Gold. "She’s someone I’ve looked up to ever since I started snowboarding - even more so when I got to spend time with her over the years and have gotten to know the kind of person she is. She’s been a huge support system for me emotionally when things get challenging and I’m grateful to have her here for this experience."
