Mount Washington alumnus Teal Harle finishes fifth in Olympic men’s slopestyle skiing

Nails final run to move up seven positions in standings

Mount Washington Ski Club alumnus Teal Harle put two missed runs behind him in the men’s slopestyle skiing final in the Winter Olympics and nailed his third and final run to finish in fifth place, just outside the medals.

The 21-year-old Harle, who grew up in Campbell River, was part of an impressive showing by the Canadian team which put Alex Beaulieu-Marchand on the medal podium with a bronze medal. Teammate Evan McEachern finished just behind Harle in sixth place.

Harle qualified in fifth place. But his first two runs of the three-run final were marred by costly mistakes. Those runs scored 22.80 and 25.60.

Heading into the third run he was in the 12th and final spot but Harle pulled it all together for his final run, scoring 90 with his last chance. That vaulted him into fourth at the time but runs by subsequent skiers pushed him down to fifth.
