PARK CITY, Utah — Maddie Bowman did not need a victory to wrap up a spot in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Bowman already assured herself a trip to Sochi with her ski halfpipe win in Colorado last weekend.

That didn't stop her from putting on another show.

Bowman scored 92.20 points on her final run to claim victory at the U.S. Grand Prix on Friday evening. She has won three of the four Olympic team selection events so far in the women's halfpipe. Bowman, the reigning Winter X Games champion, is expected to be a gold medal contender for Team USA next month in Sochi.

France's Kevin Rolland took the top spot in the men's halfpipe final. Rolland finished first after scoring 94.40 points on his final run. He had already clinched a spot on the French Olympic team.
