Noelle Pikus-Pace took the silver medal in the women’s skeleton competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Friday.
Each competitor gets four turns down the course and the one with the lowest combined time is the winner.
The 31-year-old Eagle Mountain, Utah, resident’s total time was 3 minutes, 53.86 seconds. The gold medal went to Elizabeth Yarnold of Great Britain, whose total time was 3:52.89 seconds.
Pikus-Pace, who is Mormon, came in fourth in the 2010 Vancouver Games.
Canada’s Eric Neilson was 12th after the first two men’s skeleton runs Friday. His combined time for the first two runs is 1:54.42 seconds.
The final two runs are scheduled for Saturday.
Competing this weekend
Alpine’s Chris Fogt is expected to push for pilot Cory Butner in the two-man bobsled for the United States.
Australia’s Torah Bright is scheduled to competing in the snowboard cross races.
