SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Alla Tsuper of Belarus won the Olympic gold medal Friday in women's freestyle skiing aerials.

The silver medal went to Xu Mengtao of China and the bronze to Lydia Lassila of Australia.

The highest score of the day was turned in by American Ashley Caldwell in qualifying, a 101.25, but she was eliminated in the first stage of the three-stage finals.
