SOCHI, RUSSIA – Kaitlyn Farrington upset three former Olympic champions to take women’s halfpipe snowboarding gold at the Sochi Games on Wednesday.

The American had failed to make the final directly from the heats, needing a second chance semi-final to progress, but produced a stunning second run to score 91.75.

Vancouver 2010 winner Torah Bright of Australia missed out on gold by just 0.25 while veteran Salt Lake City 2002 champion Kelly Clark, 30, took bronze with a score of 90.75.

That meant that Turin 2006 gold medallist Hannah Teter missed out on another medal by just 0.25 to her American compatriot.
