Canadian freestyle skier Cassie Sharpe has won gold in the women's ski halfpipe competition at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Sharpe, from Comox, B.C., finished with a score of 95.80 on a cool, sunny morning at Phoenix Park.

France's Marie Martinod took silver after crashing in her final run, guaranteeing Sharpe the top spot.

American Brita Sigourney won bronze.

Sharpe was the last skier to compete in the three-run final after winning the qualifying session a day earlier.

She set the tone early in the final, getting a 94.40 in her first run down the halfpipe and following it up with a 95.80 in the second.
