Men’s freestyle skiing (halfpipe gold medal final): Team USA veteran David Wise, the reigning gold medalist from the Sochi Games, is the favorite to finish No. 1 once again, although his first run earlier this week had some on edge thanks to an uncharacteristically poor score. Fellow Americans Aaron Blunck, Alex Ferreira and Torin Yater-Wallce are also set for the finals, meaning the U.S. could realistically sweep the podium.
