Clark put up another strong run, scoring higher but remaining in third. She is aiming for her fourth career halfpipe Olympic medal. After a fall in her first run, Arielle Gold of the United States had a clean run and moved into fourth.
Liu improved as well, to 89.75, but still short of Kim’s first run.
That left Kim in good position to take some chances to up her score. She went for the back-to-back 1080s, but fell on the second. If she still leads before her third run, she may take another shot at it.
