PYEONGCHANG - Chase Josey will compete for a medal Tuesday in the men's snowboard halfpipe. The Hailey native nailed his second run in qualifying, securing his spot in the finals.

Josey needed a great run after he caught the lip of the pipe during his first run, and he pulled it off, picking up a score of 83.75, good enough for 7th place.

The top 12 qualifiers move on to the final round.

The first-time Olympian was one of four Americans to qualify for the finals, including two-time gold medalist Shaun White - who grabbed first place in qualifying with a stellar second run - and Ben Ferguson who was born in Boise and lives in Bend, Oregon.
