BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - David Wise and Maddie Bowman have clinched spots on the U.S. Olympic team by winning ski halfpipe events Sunday at the U.S. Grand Prix.

Wise scored 89 points on his second run to edge Mike Riddle of Canada on a snowy day that made the halfpipe a little slower than usual. The next-highest American was Simon Dumont, who finished fourth overall.

Bowman had a solid first run to hold off Ayana Onozuka of Japan.

There are two more qualifying events for U.S. athletes to earn spots on the Olympic team. Both will be held next weekend in Park City, Utah.

The event organizers were able to stage the ski halfpipe event despite the snowy conditions. High wind led officials to cancel snowboard slopestyle and halfpipe events on Saturday.
