Riddle, who successfully executed the bone and arrow, posted a score of 90.6 points in very snowy weather conditions. David Wise of the United States won the gold medal with 92 points followed by Kevin Rolland of France at 88.6 points.

Riddle entered the competition as a strong medal contender having won the 2013 World Cup standings, third in the 2014 World Cup standings and third in a World Cup test event in Sochi a year ago.

Riddle also continued Canada's excellence in freestyle skiing at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Out of Canada's 17 medals to date in Sochi, seven have come in freestyle skiing events.

Team Canada now sits in fifth place in the overall medal count. They have four gold medals, nine silver medals and four bronze medals. Netherlands and the United States have 20 medals each, followed by Russia at 19 medals and Norway at 18 medals.
