Sharpe wins ski halfpipe gold in Colorado

Cassie Sharpe was pretty sharp on Friday, capturing the gold medal in women’s ski superpipe at the Dew Tour event in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Sharpe had been the top scorer in Wednesday’s qualifying round. She laid down a superb first run in the final to take the lead with 88.00 points.

She did even better in her second run, earning the 93.66 points which would secure her first place ahead of France’s Marie Martinod (92.00) and American Maddie Bowman (90.33).

Sharpe previously won silver at the event in 2015, which was just her second time making an appearance there. The 2016 X Games Oslo champion had started her 2017-18 season with a gold medal in early September at the FIS World Cup event in Cardrona, New Zealand.
