Stone, Bergoust Give U.S. Sweep
Eric Bergoust (pictured) and Nikki Stone soared, flipped and twisted to sweep gold medals for the United States in aerials. Despite windy, snowy conditions, Stone nailed both her back somersaults to reach 193.00 points, and Bergoust executed almost perfect "quad'' jumps for which he earned a world record 255.64 points. The U.S. has now won three of four gold medals in freestyle skiing.
