Colorado’s Arielle Gold Wins Bronze

Four years ago, U.S. snowboarder Arielle Gold was forced to withdraw before the halfpipe competition in Sochi even started after dislocating her shoulder in a practice run. Tuesday morning in PyeongChang, Gold, a psychology major at CU, captured her first Olympic medal.

Gold narrowly qualified for the halfpipe final, scoring a 62.75 on her second run Monday to earn the 12th and final spot.

Nearly gave these two a heart attack, but I managed to squeeze through yesterday’s qualis and into today’s finals, going down at 6:00pm MST. Excited for another opportunity to ride this beautiful halfpipe with ma gurls! pic.twitter.com/W7pek07w1c
