Wise defends title, U.S. gets 3rd halfpipe gold

At least the Americans have the Phoenix Snow Park halfpipe.

In the four years since Sochi, Wise has gone through the death of four family members or friends - including his father-in-law and grandmother - and supported his sister, Christy, after she lost her leg in a boating accident.

American freestyle skier David Wise came through in the clutch to compete as gold medalist in the men's halfpipe.

Toyota Develops New Magnet Less Dependent on Rare Earth Metals
Toyota replaced some of the neodymium with the lower-cost elements lanthanum and cerium. Motors with the magnets can be used in any electrified powertrain, the company said.

The U.S. has enjoyed significant success in the skiing and snowboarding events at the PyeongChang Games, having won five gold medals so far.

The U.S. snowboard and freestyle skiing crews have accounted for 10 of the country's 19 medals in Pyeongchang.

Curiously, New Zealand's Nico Porteous was in second before Wise's run and didn't attempt to improve on his 94.80, just skating calmly down the pipe.

United a big team in defeat - Mourinho aims dig at City
There was a clash between the players after Delph was sent off, with Guardiola and Cook also sharing views after the interval. The Argentine was not charged, with Wigan and City charged for failing to control their players after Delph's sending off.

Compatriot Alex Ferreira had the best score of run one and two and, in a repeat of last month's X Games, finished behind Wise with 96.40. Porteous got the Kiwis' second medal of the day after snowboarder Zoi Sadowski Synnott won bronze in Big Air earlier Thursday to end a 26-year Winter Games drought for New Zealand.

Porteous didn't even bother trying to top it in Run 3, cruising through the halfpipe without a trick and waiting at the bottom for the other competitors.

Wise put down his double-cork dream run a few minutes later, and Ferreira could only counter with a 96.40.
