Freestyle Skiing - Cheshire makes ski halfpipe World Cup final

Great Britain's Rowan Cheshire secured a top ten finish to qualify for the final of ski halfpipe World Cup in Copper Mountain.

Cheshire, fresh from a recent seventh place at the Dew Cup in Breckenridge, posted a score of 71.80 to secure tenth but team-mate Emma Lonsdale's 16th place means she failed to advance while men's team-mate Murray Buchan also didn't make the final.

After a tough draw, British snowboarder Jamie Nicholls narrowly missed qualifying for the men's slopestyle final with a score that would have progressed him in two of the four heats while team-mates Sam Turnbull and Nate Kern also missed out.
