KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — American Kelly Clark led the women in Olympic halfpipe qualifying, with some other gold-medal winners right behind her.

Clark, the 2002 Olympic champion, scored a 95 on her first run, to advance to Wednesday evening's finals. She'll be joined there by the last two gold medalists, Australian Torah Bright (2010) and American Hannah Teter (2006).

All cruised easily through the first round on a slushy halfpipe in temperatures approaching 50 degrees.

Others moving straight to the final: Queralt Castellet of Spain, Sophie Rodriguez of France and Cai Xuetong of China.

American Kaitlyn Farrington is one of 12 riders who will compete in semifinals for the last six spots in the medal round. Her U.S. teammate, Arielle Gold, did not start after hurting her shoulder in practice.

    Remember the old Nike ad from Tiger Woods' uber-dominant days, when he famously told the golfing world it was all about the majors? Well, the older and wiser Woods might disagree with his younger, brasher self, now that Woods has ended the longest victory drought of his professional career.
