China failed to win the women's aerials gold medal at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games Friday as world champion Xu Mengtao had to settlefor silver and two-time Olympic runner-up Li Nina finished fourth.

It was the fourth silver China has won in the women's aerials as Li Nina took the silver in the past two Winter Olympics and Xu Nannanfinished second in 1998 Winter Olympics.

"I was not disappointed," said China's coach Ji Dong. "We had the chance, but we didn't have enough luck."

Fifth-time Olympian Alla Tsuper of Belarus shocked a top draw field to win the title with 98.01 points, while Xu, who performed a three-twistjump with a minor error on her landing, scored 83.50.

Defending champion Lydia Lassila of Australia failed to land a four-twist jump and took the bronze in 72.12. Hot favorite Li botched herlanding with a 3.9 difficulty degree jump and missed the podium with 46.02.

Tsuper, 34, had never before won a medal in four previous Olympic attempts and was ranked only 13th in the World Cup standings cominginto the Olympics. She took over Chinese Cheng Shuang to make the last final.

"The gold medalist is a veteran who had been famous in the 1990s," said Ji. "It took her so many years to win the gold, so for the Chineseteam, we will wait for our chance."

"Maybe we will be lucky enough in 2022 if Beijing can host the Winter Olympic Games," he said.

Xu was obviously unsatisfied with her first Olympic medal.

"I am happy indeed, but it is a shame because I didn't win the gold medal. This is the fourth silver medal China has won at the OlympicWinter Games (in aerials)," said 23-year-old.

"Before the competition we all wanted to get a gold medal, but I didn't get the chance."

Xu, who led the second final with a stunning 101.08, struggled to complete her last jump. "My arm hurts and I cannot straighten it," she said. "I tried to land straight but I didn't succeed. There was something wrong with my judgement. I didn't quite get used to the slope here becauseit is steeper than what we have in the US where we train."

Li, who was competing in her fourth Olympics, accepted the fourth-finish calmly.

"Many of my friends told me whether I win the gold or not, I am already a winner for them, and I think that is enough," Li said.

The Sochi Games is her last Olympics. "My father will beat me if I continue skiing like that. A lot of girls in my age have already had babies,"she said, jokingly.

Lassila back-slapped while trying to land a quad-twist jump which no woman had ever attempted in competition. The 32-year-old was intears after the final.

"I really feel like I've reached my potential," she said. "I wanted to do something new in the final."




“记得我第一次参加世锦赛也是银牌,后来我拿了冠军。”北京时间今天凌晨,在索契冬奥会女子自由式滑雪空中技巧最后一跳中落地不稳,用左手支撑了一下身体的徐梦桃,最终拿到了银牌,留下了遗憾。不过,她已经将期望瞄向了四年后的韩国平昌,她说:“说起来四年很轻松,过得很快,但也是1000多天啊!”

自由式滑雪空中技巧预赛第一跳,徐梦桃完成得并不好,通过预赛第二轮方才晋级决赛。“我还从来没比过第二跳呢!”在混合采访区,在别的选手都以还有比赛谢绝采访的时候,这位爱笑的东北姑娘笑着说了这么一句,显示出她的实力与信心。随后决赛的前两跳,徐梦桃都完成得非常出色,特别是第二跳,拿下了101.08分的高分,只要保持住,在最后一跳中跳出同样的水准,冠军就是她的。

但决赛最后一跳,在徐梦桃前面出场的队友李妮娜,却出现了状况,重重地摔在了地上,“我在上面看娜姐摔在那,我都不敢瞅了。我就想哭,但又必须马上调整自己的情绪。”她说,“就四个人比,时间太短了,无论你怎么调整,均匀呼吸,还是特别紧,然后我就是落地时候没有控制好。”从地上爬起来的徐梦桃,与李妮娜紧紧地拥抱在了一起,伤心地大哭起来,“我还是挺遗憾的!”赛后每当说到比赛的失误,她的眼泪都抑制不住地流了出来。其实,由于最终夺冠的白俄罗斯选手阿拉·楚佩尔,最后一跳的动作难度并没有徐梦桃高,因此只要徐梦桃当时站住了,最后的金牌很可能就是她的。但徐梦桃认为自己还有机会圆奥运金牌梦。她说:“我们这个项目都是老队员,我还能干到2026年呢!”

“这次索契冬奥会就是我之前四年的全部目标。”徐梦桃说,“关于未来我还没有明确的打算,但我会继续努力,让自己更强大一些,去面对接下来的比赛。”
