Saturday marked the womenâ€™s moguls event at Cypress Mountain, just outside of Vancouver. Heavy rain made it a challenging event, but the girls skied amazingly well and all four US team members advanced to the finals. USâ€™s Hannah Kearney claimed the gold medal (first US gold of the games), beating silver medalist Jenn Heil of Canada by almost a full point. US skier Shannon Bharke earned the bronze. It was a good day for team USA.
Sunday was menâ€™s moguls and the weather cooperated nicely. Team Canada took top honors at the menâ€™s contest with Alexandre Bilodeau earning the gold medal (the first Canadian to win an Olympic gold on Canadian soil). Australiaâ€™s Dale Begg-Smith earned the silver, and Bryon Wilson of the US won the bronze.
