Brit Dan Wakeman, who was the first British male to ever qualify for the Olympics finished in 26th place in the half-pipe competition at the Olympics in Bardonachea today.
A disapointing 14.3 points from his first run gave him a massive task to qualify for the afternoons finals. His second run brought in a very respectable 27.8 points but it wasn't enough to take him through to the finals as Dan ended up finising in 26th place overall.
Dan, 24 originally from Plymouth qualified after a storming performance in Leysin last month.
Tommorow, its the turn of the ladies so watch out for Lesley McKenna and Kate Foster in the half-pipe. Kate's had a metioric rise through the ranks this year, but its the Scot, Lesley who quite possibly could bring GB their first medal (and an ex WSG writer no less).
Qualification for the ladies half-pipe finals starts at 10am (9am UK time) with the finals from 2pm (1pm UK), you can catch all the action in the UK on the BBC/Eurosport. So cheer them on.
