The Winter Olympics are winding down with just two days of competition left before the Closing Ceremony. On Friday, figure skaters were in action on the rink in the pairs competition, while skiers faced tough conditions in minus-12 degrees Fahrenheit weather.

The big picture: Americans David Wise and Alex Ferriera won silver and bronze, respectively, in the freeski halfpipe.

  • Wise has medaled in all three freeski halfpipe events since it debuted in 2014, winning gold in 2014 and 2018 to go with his silver medal.
