Shaun White expects to fly high in the men's snowboard halfpipe.

The king is dead. Long live the king.

That's the story in halfpipe snowboarding, an event that had been the province of Shaun White for each of the last two Olympics. There was no gold medal for White, and no spot on the podium as he was beaten by younger and more agile snowboarders.

Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland is the new king of the halfpipe. "I-Pod" edged out two Japanese boarders for the gold medal

Dara Howell of Canada took home the gold medal in the women's slopesytle event while Norway's Ola Vigen Hattestad won the men's cross country skiing sprint.

Natalie Geisenberger of Germany dominated the women's luge event, but there was good news for American Erin Hamlin, who won the bronze.

Carina Vogt of Germany joined Geisenberger in celebration as she won gold in the first women's ski jumping event in Olympic history. No American finished better than 10th in that event.

Finally, Sang Hwa Lee of South Korea won the women's 500-meter sprint, edging out Olga Fatkulina of Russia for the gold.
