Arielle Gold injured in halfpipe training

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — U.S. snowboarder Arielle Gold pulled out of the Olympic halfpipe contest Wednesday after an accident in training, a few minutes before she was scheduled to compete.

No details on the injury were immediately available, although she appeared to have hurt her right hand.

The 17-year-old from Steamboat Springs, Colo., was initially put on a stretcher but walked off under her own power.

Her brother, Taylor, finished 14th in the men’s halfpipe contest.
