Sochi Olympics, women's halfpipe: Torah Bright, Kelly Clark and Hannah Teter reach finals

The men’s halfpipe final was filled with plenty of drama and excitement, as it all came down to the final run from United States star Shaun White. Today, the women make their drops into the halfpipe at the 2014 Winter Olympics and they are hoping to put on another great show.

So far, so good.

After a strong showing in the qualifying rounds, former Olympic gold medal winners Torah Bright of Australia and Americans Hannah Teter and Kelly Clark have all advanced straight through to the finals.

Clark led all qualifiers with a score of  95.00, while Bright scored a 93.00 and Teter followed closely behind with a 92.00.

Spain’s Queralt Castellet (93.25), France’s Sophie Rodriguez (78.50) and Quetong Cai of China (88.00) also were able to bypass the semifinal runs.

The finals will take place later this afternoon at 12:30 p.m. ET. Live coverage will be available at NBC Olympics Live Extra.
