SOCHI, February 09, 2:20 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia freestyle skier Ekaterina Stolyarova called her Sochi Olympics performance in the finals of ladies moguls on Saturday as “unsatisfactory,” after she finished in the 19th place in the overall standings.
“Having qualified for the finals is not an achievement for me, considering my previous Olympics in Vancouver, where I finished in the 7th place,” Stolyarova said after she finished competing for the medals in the first out of three final runs.
“Unfortunately, I have made the same mistake twice in a row at this tournament,” Stolyarova said. “This has never happened to me. It is very hard for me now to say why it happened.”
The Olympic gold in ladies’ moguls went to Canada’s Justine Dufour-Lapointe and the silver to her elder sister Chloe Dufour-Lapointe. The bronze was grabbed by Hannah Kearney of the United States.
Stolyarova’s teammates Regina Rakhimova, Marika Pertakhiya and Elena Muratova finished the moguls competition in the 8th, 17th and 21st places respectively.
The overall medals standing of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games is currently topped by Norway with two gold, one silver and one bronze medals. The second place is shared by Canada and the Netherlands, with each of them having won one gold, one silver and one bronze. They are followed by the United States in the 3rd place with one gold and one bronze medals.
