Canadian skier Dara Howell won the gold medal Tuesday in the first-ever Olympic women's freestyle slopestyle event.

The silver medal went to Devin Logan of the United States, while another Canadian, Kim Lamarre, took bronze.

Howell, 19, earned a score of 94.20 on her first run down the course in Rosa Khutor.

Logan notched an 85.40 on her first run. Lamarre, who suffered a wipeout in her first try, secured the bronze with a score of 85.00 on the second run.

"I don't think it will hit me until later. It is truly amazing. There is a number of really good girls out there and I came out on top," Howell told reporters after winning the gold.

"This is the best moment in my entire life," she said.

Canada - with four gold, three silver and two bronze medals - trails only Norway in the medal count at the Sochi Games. EFE
