3 Americans advance in women's ski halfpipe

Sigourney, Drew, Bowman make event's final

Three Americans, including 2014 gold medalist Maddie Bowman, qualified for the final in women's ski halfpipe Monday at the PyeongChang Olympics.

The other two from Team USA advancing to event's final are Brita Sigourney, 28, of Carmel, California, and Annalisa Drew, 24, of Andover, Massachusetts.

While the final will take place Tuesday in PyeongChang, its start time will be 8:30 p.m. ET Monday. All participants will get three runs, with their best score counting toward the medals.

Sigourney posted the third best score in qualifying with 90.60, with Drew right behind her in fourth at 86.00. Bowman, 24, of South Lake Tahoe, California, had the sixth best qualifying score of 83.80, with the top 12 advancing.

Devin Logan, the fourth American in the event, finished 15th and failed to advance.

Like Bowman, Sigourney and Drew also competed in Sochi, finishing sixth and ninth, respectively, in halfpipe.

The top qualifier from Monday's two runs was Canada's Cassie Sharpe, who posted a run scored at 93.00 on her first attempt and then followed that up with a second run of 93.40. Both those runs were the top two scores given out during qualifying.

France's Marie Martinod claimed the next best scores, posting a 91.60 on her first run followed by a 92.00 to stick right behind Sharpe.
