COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) — Alex Ferreira joked that all the spins in his winning run of the men’s ski halfpipe final left him dizzy.
Far less confusing is the fact he’s a virtual lock to make the U.S. Olympic team for the Winter Games in Beijing.
Ferreira now has back-to-back wins in back-to-back competitions in the same Copper Mountain halfpipe.
Ferreira scored a 95.75 at the Dew Tour event to edge teammate Aaron Blunck.
Brendan Mackay of Canada wound up third while two-time reigning Olympic champion David Wise finished fifth.
