The third and last act of the Eileen Gu show got under way on Thursday morning and unlike in her previous events, she cruised into the finals of the women's half-pipe. Gu previously said she finds qualification runs more nerve-wracking than finals, and needed her last attempt to make it into the medal round of the women’s slopestyle, where she won silver on Tuesday. Things were very different today. Gu stomped her authority on the event, scoring a 93.75 and 95.50 in her two runs. Her nearest competitor, the Canadian Rachael Karker, got an 89.50 on her second run. While there was no medal at stake for the Chinese skier this morning, there were six up for grabs on Thursday, with embattled Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva missing out in the women's single skating after multiple falls during her free skate routine. The 15-year-old was left in tears after finishing fourth overall, with a flower ceremony and medal ceremony held after all, as gold and silver went to her teammates Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova, and bronze going to Japan's Kaori Sakamoto. Earlier, Canada and the US battled it out for gold in the final of the women’s ice hockey. Marie-Philip Poulin scored twice and assisted on Sarah Nurse’s goal to add another chapter to her legacy as “Captain Clutch” for Canada as they won 3-2. Goalie Ann-Renee Desbiens made 38 saves and was at her best when under siege. Reporting by Josh Ball, Matt Eaton, Nic Atkin, Jess Ma, Jack Lau and Harvey Kong.
