Canadian freestyle skier Chloe Dufour-LaPointe flies on Thursday during the women's moguls qualification round at the Winter Olympics at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park in Russia. She flew high enough, finishing second in the qualification round and earning a spot in Saturday's finals. She was one of three Canadian sisters to compete in the event. All three advanced.

German freestyle skier Laura Graseman crashes hard on the moguls run at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park Thursday during the qualifying round for women's moguls at the 2014 Olympics. Graseman didn't get much for points from the judges, but she got a load of respect from the fans, who roared as she got up, cleaned herself off and ripped to the bottom of the course despite the fall.

One of the side effects of winning a gold medal is being a celebrity, at least in your sport. Hannah Kearney, gold medalist in 2010, was plenty popular after Thursday's women's moguls qualification round, signing autographs and taking pictures with the public and even foreign members of the media. She was pretty good on the snow, too, laying down the top qualifying score to advance to Saturday night's finals. Photo by Joel Reichenberger
