WOMEN'S SKI SLOPESTYLE

Colorado slopestyle skier Keri Herman competed on Tuesday but will leave Sochi without a medal. She finished 10th overall in the Olympic debut of women's slopestyle skiing.

Herman is a University of Denver graduate and lives in Breckenridge, Colo. She was rated as a medal contender going into the winter games.

Herman's teammate, Devin Logan of Vermont, snagged silver in the event. Canadian Dara Howell got gold and Canadian Kim Lamarre took bronze.

WOMEN'S CROSS-COUNTRY SPRINT

No American woman has ever won an Olympic medal in cross-country skiing. Kikkan Randall from Alaska hopes to change that before her time in Sochi is up. On Tuesday, however, she fell short in the women's individual freestyle sprint.

Randall was eliminated in the quarterfinals Tuesday after finishing fourth of six skiers in a tough heat.

Randall will also compete for the U.S. in the relay and team sprint.

MEN'S HALFPIPE FINALS

A rough day for Team USA in the men's halfpipe finals. Shaun White was hoping to make history and get his third gold medal in the event. White, however, will be leaving Sochi without a medal.

White finished fourth in the men's halfpipe final after slipping twice. Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland took gold, Ayumu Hirano of Japan got silver and Taku Hiraoka got bronze.

Taylor Gold of Steamboat Springs, Colo., did not make it to the final round Tuesday.

WOMEN'S LUGE FINALS

Luge has been an Olympic event for the past 50 years. On Tuesday, an American grabbed Team USA's first Olympic medal in the sport.

Erin Hamlin of New York took bronze in the women's luge finals. Natalie Geisenberger of Germany earned gold and Tatjana Hüfner of Germany took silver.

PAIRS FIGURE SKATING

U.S. pairs figure skaters Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir finished ninth in the pairs competition in Sochi on Tuesday. Russian teams took gold and bronze while a German team took silver.

WOMEN'S SKI JUMPING

Ski jumping's roots go back to the first Winter Games held in 1924. This is the first year, however, that women have been included in the sport.

The highest finisher for Team USA in this event on Tuesday was Jessica Jerome of Florida. She finished 10th. Lindsey Van of Michigan finished 15th and Sarah Hendrickson of Utah finished 21st.
