The New Zealand freestyle skier Janina Kuzma has finished 5th in the halfpipe at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Kuzma qualified for the final in 8th position... she was 4th after the first run of the final, but was unable to improve with her second run.

American Maddie Bowman won the gold.

It completes a successful event for New Zealand with Jossi Wells finishing 4th in the men's halfpipe earlier this week.
