Wednesday Winter Olympics Update

February 12, 2014, 8:35 AM

Wednesday Winter Olympics Update
SOCHI, RUSSIA -

The Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, continue. Here's the what some of our American atheletes are up to:

Clark, Bright, Teter All Through In Halfpipe

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 (2010) and American Hannah Teter (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 is one of 12 riders who will compete in semifinals for the last six spots in the medal round. Her U.S. teammate, Arielle Gold, did not start after hurting her shoulder in practice.

Arielle Gold Injured In Halfpipe Training

U.S. snowboarder Arielle Gold pulled out of the Olympic halfpipe contest Wednesday after injuring her shoulder in training, a few minutes before she was scheduled to compete.

The 17-year-old from Steamboat Springs, Colo., was initially put on a stretcher but walked off under her own power. Gold, the youngest member of the U.S. halfpipe team and the 2013 world champion, was expected to be a medal contender along with American teammates Kelly Clark, Hannah Teter and Kaitlyn Farrington.

Her brother, Taylor, finished 14th in the men's halfpipe contest.

Goalie Jonathan Quick To Start Sochi Opener For U.S.

Jonathan Quick will be the goaltender for the U.S. when it plays Slovakia on Thursday in its Olympic hockey opener.

Coach Dan Bylsma says he has a plan in net for other preliminary-round games, but on Wednesday declined to say what it was.

Quick will get the start instead of Ryan Miller and No. 3 goalie Jimmy Howard. Miller helped the Americans win silver at the 2010 Olympics.
