A bright, shiny gold medal in halfpipe for Torah

BY foxsports • February 18, 2010

Australian Torah Bright has won the gold medal in the Olympic women's halfpipe, defeating American Hannah Teter during a pressure-packed second run.

Bright fell during her first run of the finals Thursday night, meaning there was no room for error the second time. She stuck all five of her moves for a score of 45 points, 2.6 better than Teter, the defending Olympic champion.

Kelly Clark, the 2002 champion, won bronze.
