A post shared by Team GB (@teamgb)Freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy made his first Winter Olympics appearance for Great Britain today, and after a shaky start, managed to just scrape into the qualifiers for the final.Kenworthy, 30, was competing in the men’s freeski halfpipe in Beijing.

All competitors had two runs at the course. Kenworthy fell on his first run, so earned a low score of 8.50. This put additional pressure on him for his second run.Thankfully, he managed a much improved 70.75 on his second attempt.

He then had a nervous wait to see how the rest of the field would perform and if his combined score was good enough to see him through.Competitors with the top twelve scorings go to the final on Saturday.
