According to the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association, Mike Riddle of Edmonton, Alberta won a silver medal at a World Cup men's freestyle skiing event in Breckenridge, Colorado on Sunday.

Riddle, who won the gold medal in men's halfpipe skiing at the 2011 World Freestyle Skiing Championships in Park City, Utah, recorded his first podium finish of the 2013-14 halfpipe skiing season.

Riddle's silver medal comes after missing a World Cup event earlier this month in Calgary because of a bruised heel. Reigning world champion David Wise of the United States won the gold medal Sunday with Kevin Rolland of France winning the bronze medal.

Wise posted a score of 89 points, followed by Riddle at 85.2 points and Rolland at 82 points.

The silver medal for Riddle is key because it comes less than a month away from the start of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. This was also the last World Cup men's halfpipe skiing event before the world's best halfpipe skiers compete at the Olympic Winter Games on February 20.
