According to the Canadian Olympic Committee, Mike Riddle of Sherwood Park, Alberta is a halfpipe skier and not a slopestyle skier at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. On Thursday, the Associated Press mysteriously projected Riddle to win an Olympic bronze in the men's slopestyle skiing event.

There was only one Canadian who participated in the men's slopestyle skiing event and that was Alex Beaulieu-Marchand of Quebec City, who finished in 12th place.

Riddle is an Olympic medal contender at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, but in the men's halfpipe competition only where he was the World Cup champion in 2013 and was in third place in the 2014 World Cup standings. Riddle will be competing in the men's halfpipe skiing competition at 6:30 a.m. on Sportsnet on Tuesday.

The Olympic men's slopestyle skiing competition on Thursday had an American sweep with Joss Christensen winning gold, Gus Kenworthy winning silver and Nick Goepper winning bronze.
