Snowboarding medals were awarded in men's and women's big air, Kelly Sildaru and Eileen Gu battled in the women's freeski slopestyle final, and Mikaela Shiffrin and Sofia Goggia raced the women's downhill on Day 11 of the Winter Olympics. Plus, the women's singles event for figure skating began with the short program.

Valieva stumbles but leads after controversial return; Americans advance

Any figure skating fan who says their eyes weren't fixated on Kamila Valieva at the start of the highly-anticipated women's singles competition during Tuesday's short program were either lying or... well, lying.

But Kaori Sakamoto made sure they caught her show as well, as the Japanese star made a podium-shaped statement while Valieva scored high but made an uncharacteristic mistake during her skate.

Valieva, the 15-year-old phenom caught up in a drug-testing controversy at the 2022 Winter Olympics, delivered a strong showing despite putting her hand on the ice while landing her opening jump and posted an 82.16.

That leaves Russian Olympic Committee teammate Anna Shcherbakova just off the pace after delivering a terrific routine.

Sakamoto is third, standing in the way of an ROC podium sweep. Aleksandra Trusova sits fourth with a 74.60.

Twenty-five of 30 skaters advanced to the free skate. The number is typically 24, but the International Olympic Committee and International Skating Union decided it would be increased by one if Valieva is among the top 24, since her appeal with the Russian Anti-Doping Agency is ongoing. The IOC also ruled that if Valieva is top three after the free skate, no flower ceremony or medal ceremony will be held for the event.

Americans Alysa Liu (8th, 69.50), Mariah Bell (11th, 65.38), and Karen Chen (13th, 64.11) all advanced to the free skate.

U.S. claims bronze in men's team pursuit

Speed skaters Casey Dawson, Emery Lehman and Joey Mantia secured a bronze medal in men's team pursuit for the United States with a strong performance in the event's B Final. Racing against a Dutch squad that included Sven Kramer and Patrick Roest, the Americans blew them away with a 2.81-second margin of victory to win the race and the bronze.

The men's pursuit gold went to Norway, which beat ROC in the A Final. ROC previously eliminated the U.S. in the semifinals despite both countries beating the previous Olympic record in that race.

In the women's team pursuit, Canada ended up winning gold, overcoming a highly decorated Dutch team (Ireen Wuest, Irene SchoutenAntoinette de Jong) in the semifinals and then Japan in the A Final.

Three Americans advance to men's slopestyle final

Nick Goepper, Colby Stevenson, and Alex Hall will compete in the men’s freeski slopestyle final Tuesday after landing strong qualifying runs.

Goepper finished third with a score of 82.51. He is the only athlete with two Olympic medals in slopestyle, coming off a bronze in 2014 and silver in 2018. Hall placed fifth and Stevenson sixth.

The top-12 finishers advanced to the final. Skiers had two runs, but only the top score counted.

Switzerland’s Andri Ragettli, the reigning world champion, and the Netherlands’ Birk Ruud, who won gold in big air earlier at the Olympics, finished in the top-two slots.

Goepper was part of the American team that swept the podium in slopestyle in Sochi. They'll have a chance to repeat the same feat eight years later.

Anna Gasser defends snowboard big air gold

In an exciting and progressive final, Anna Gasser outdueled Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and defended her gold medal in women's snowboard big air.

Gasser and Sadowski-Synnott were separated by just 0.25 points after landing double cork 1080s in opposite directions on their first two runs. That set up a dramatic finale in which both women attempted to improve one of their scores by landing a 1260.

Gasser stomped her cab double cork 1260 to move into the lead. Then Sadowski-Synnott fell on her attempt, a backside double cork 1260, and was unable to better her score, leaving her with silver and sealing the gold for Gasser.

The competition also featured a historic moment when Japan's Reira Iwabuchi attempted a triple, which has never before been landed in a women's competition. Iwabuchi was unable to land it, but her competitors were nevertheless excited by her decision to push the progression of the sport.

Results: Women's Snowboard Big Air

🥇 Anna Gasser (AUT)

🥈 Zoi Sadowski-Synnott (NZL)

🥉 Kokomo Murase (JPN)

Breakout star Su Yiming wins snowboard big air gold

China's Su Yiming continued his breakout performance on the Olympic stage, capturing the gold medal in men's snowboard big air.

Su, 17, was largely unknown entering this season, but has quickly turned into one of the stars of the Games for the host nation, starting with his silver-medal performance in slopestyle earlier this month.

After stomping his first two runs, a frontside 1800 with a tail grab and a backside triple cork 1800, Su had the big air victory locked up by the time it was his turn to take a final run. Norway's Mons Roisland and Canada's Max Parrot, who was awarded gold over Su in slopestyle, took the other two spots on the podium behind Su.

Although Red Gerard was the top U.S. finisher in fifth, it was Chris Corning who stole the show by landing a quad cork 1800 on his opening run. Corning was the only rider to land a quad – Mark McMorris attempted it twice and fell both times – but he was unable to put down another solid score to get into a medal position.

Results: Men's Snowboard Big Air

🥇 Su Yiming (CHN)

🥈 Mons Roisland (NOR)

🥉 Max Parrot (CAN)

Switzerland’s Mathilde Germaud won the slopstyle event, bettering her 2018 silver finish. Germaud was the 12th and final qualifier to make the event. Mathilde earned a score of 85.56 in her second run, which just edged out China’s Eileen Gu. Gu put down a solid 86.23 run on her third and final run. Estonia’s Kelly Sildaru rounded out the podium after her first run held up for a score of 82.06. Her bronze medal is Estonia’s first ever Winter Olympic medal outside of cross-country skiing.

The Americans were supposed to have two athletes in the final. However, Maggie Voisin was the only one to compete, finishing 5th overall. Marin Hamill qualified for the final but didn't ski due to an injury she suffered during her second qualifying round. Darian Stevens didn’t qualify for the final, while Caroline Claire didn’t compete after a fall in a training session.

Results: Women's Freeski Slopestyle
