Twenty-year old freestyle skier Devin Logan of the United States won silver in the sport's debut Olympic slopestyle event Feb. 11 at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, bringing the nation's total medal count to six and assuring Logan a permanent spot in the history books. A pair of Canadian women rounded out the podium, with Dara Howell claiming gold and Kim Lamarre, the bronze.

A pair of good preliminary runs that earned respective marks of 79.40 and 80.40 saw Logan qualify fifth for the event final behind Howell, Lamarre, Great Britain's Katie Summerhayes, and Canadian Yuki Subota. The Vt. native's first run of the finals earned her the silver medal-worthy score of 85.40, just .4 more than reigning X Games bronze medalist Lamarre's bronze medal mark, but significantly lower than Howell's winning score of 94.20.

The other two American women in the mix, Keri Herman and Julia Krass, both advanced to the finals and finished 10th and 11th, respectively. Maggie Voisin, the 15-year old phenom and X Games ski slopestyle silver medalist, withdrew from the competition on Feb. 8 after injuring her ankle during a training run.

Perhaps the biggest story of the day in freesking was pre-event favorite Kaya Turski's failure to advance beyond qualifications. The Canadian Turski, who won the slopestyle event at January's X Games, crashed during both of her preliminary runs and finished just 19th.

The first-ever men's ski slopestyle Olympic competition will begin Feb. 12 at the Sochi Games.
