Calgary’s Brady Leman won gold in the men’s freestyle ski cross while fellow Canadian Kevin Drury finished in fourth. Fellow teammate Chris Del Bosco was in a horrific crash earlier in Thursday’s event. The 35-year-old went airborne on the final jump, landing hard on his right side.

Rachel Homan’s fifth loss eliminated them from medal contention. Her team plays its last game against the Olympic athletes from Russia later in the day.
