The 5 Ladies to Watch in Women’s Olympic Halfpipe Final

Even at the age of 17, Arielle Gold has some big names under her belt having won the 2013 World Championship Halfpipe competition before taking bronze in the Winter X-Games weeks later. In Sochi she’s a year older and better for it.

She’ll be looking for a medal to match her name as well as being driven on sibling rivalry – her older brother Taylor is the men’s Halfpipe team. Despite the huge media attention on the event Gold will remain unfazed having been a snowboarding star since childhood. Her composed style and huge airs could be enough to see nominative determinism win out.
