Torino recap: Parity reigns

In the four events contested in 2006, 10 different countries earned medals. The U.S. team produced one medal: Toby Dawson's bronze in men's Moguls. Australia's Dale Begg-Smith took gold in that event, and Finland's Mikko Ronkainen silver. Jennifer Heil of Canada took gold on the last run in the ladies Moguls, topping Norway's Kari Traa (silver), and France's Sandra Laoura (bronze).

China's Han Xiaopeng won men's Aerials, topping Dmitry Dashinski of Belarus and Vladimir Lebedev of Russia. On the ladies side, Switzerland's Evelyne Leu also took a risk by attempting the hardest jump on the women's program, a triple somersault with three twists. Leu stuck the landing, grabbing the gold medal from China's Li Nina. Australia's Alisa Camplin, who was the defending Olympic champion, took bronze.
