Ice

At times, it appeared that overnight leaders Alex Maloney and Molly Meech (NZL) would be able to grind into the top six, which would’ve guaranteed them the gold medal. But in the end Martine Soffiatti Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA) hung on for second and Maloney and Meech came out on the wrong side of a tough battle on the final run.
