She's getting back up, though. She's OK, but obviously disappointed with her run. Would have liked to join her three Canadian teammates towards the top of the leaderboard. That's it for the first qualification runs, with one more per skier left before the field is cut for the finals.
The 2-run qualification system for slopestyle is that only the best run counts. No scores carry over, so American Keri Herman and Kaya Turski of Canada could easily bounce back.
Herman and Turski were the favorites for U.S. and Canada, respectively, entering the women's slopestyle. Given how well fellow Americans and Canadians performed in the first qualifying run, if those two bounce back there could be a USA vs. Canada heavy slopestyle final.
Second runs for women's slopestyle qualifying have started. Another nasty fall out of the gates, this one by Philomena Bair of Austria. There have been a few wipeouts so far.
I still can't get over the giant nesting doll in the middle of the slopestyle course. Gets me every time.
And it's coming down to the wire for the U.S. women's curling team against Russia. Team USA trails 7-5 after 8.
Keri Herman with a bunch better run this time around. Lands everything and should be into the final.
Herman's official score is 72.40, which is the best of these second runs so far. She seems happy with it. Sh'es in ninth place overall right now and needs to stay in the top 12.
Here's Devin Logan, looking to likely join Keri Herman in the slopestyle finals.
The U.S. women are down 7-6 to Russia in the 9th. Need a strong finish to avoid falling to 0-2 in round robin competition.
U.S. women curlers have yet to tie things up, still down 7-6 to Russia in the 9th.
Russia just cleared the floor against U.S. women and drew a huge ovation from home crowd. Americans had two stones in trailing by 1, now nothing.
Making matters worse, Russia could be up 3 heading into the 10th if U.S. can't knock at least one stone out here.
And Russia with an emphatic end to the 9th end. U.S. women curlers trail 9-6 heading into the 10th, on the verge of falling to 0-2.
U.S. women curlers are in trouble. The American women slopestyle skiers, however, are looking strong. Julia Krass and Devin Logan are both already qualified for the finals and Keri Herman still has a shot.
