Torah Bright's Olympic Games preparation was not exactly ideal: two crashes, two concussions and a trip to the hospital in the span of a few days in January. The snowboarder was off the hill and her main competitors were throwing down dazzling runs in the pipe at the high-profile X Games in Aspen, Colo. What about those dreams of Olympic gold for the Aussie native? Most certainly . . . not so bright. "It wasn't the easiest month, I'll say that," Bright said. "I think I spent more time off snow than I did on. But this year I didn't want to peak at X Games.

SOCHI, Russia - Improvements were made to the much-maligned halfpipe at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park but not enough to satisfy the leading Olympic snowboarders. The high-profile extreme sports stars had extreme reactions after a practice session scheduled for earlier in the day was moved to Monday night with the hope that conditions would improve. Sloppy snow and edgy riders were not an ideal combination. The men's event starts Tuesday and the women's on Wednesday. FRAMEWORK: Best images from the Sochi Olympics Two-time gold-medal winner Shaun White said that he had a "frustrating" practice.

Most snowboarders have an iPod inside their parka as they fly above the halfpipe, letting the music carry them across the ice and snow and into another world. Hannah Teter takes the idea of "another world" to a different level. Right next to her iPod, she also carries a picture she took of schoolchildren in Africa, the ones she wants to help through her snowboarding. The Olympic gold medalist, best known to many in the "mainstream" as that dippy, groovy, kid from Vermont who makes maple syrup, has taken a more serious approach as she prepares for the next Winter Games.

Ann Walton-Teter was diagnosed with breast cancer in September. About a month later, she was informed by her health insurer, Anthem Blue Cross, that her coverage had been canceled because of a missed payment. Anthem would eventually admit that it was mistaken. But Walton-Teter, 43, had to battle the insurance giant to have her coverage restored just as she was recovering from a double mastectomy and preparing for chemotherapy. In other words, the Santa Monica resident had to go up against a corporate bureaucracy while she was at her weakest and most vulnerable - a situation that plays out time after time nationwide as insurers challenge patients' claims or doctors' prescriptions in the midst of medical crises.

When Hannah Teter was just a tyke, brothers Abe and Elijah bounced her from a trampoline 15 feet into the air and onto the roof of their parents' car. Splat! They expected her to run crying into the house. Instead, she climbed down from the car and jumped back onto the trampoline. They knew then that she was one tough little girl.

Kenny Teter's third hit of the game, a double off the top of the right-field fence, scored Travis Small from second base with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday to give top-seeded Julian High School a 9-8 victory over Francis Parker in a San Diego Section 1-A semifinal game at Ramona. Julian (17-6) will meet Borrego Springs for the 1-A championship Tuesday at Grossmont College. Francis Parker, which finished 17-8, was trying for a fourth consecutive 1-A championship this season.

Hannah Teter didn't waste any time drawing her line in the snow. The defending Olympic gold medalist in the women's halfpipe was talking about what she was going to drink and eat at the Olympics and mentioned a certain fast-food franchise. You know, that place with the golden (not medal) arches. " NOT ," she said, grinning. She felt that way long before the movie "Super Size Me" and hasn't gobbled down a Big Mac or anything on the menu in 10 years. "I have seen parts of it," Teter said.

It was such a beautiful Monday afternoon that Hannah Teter and Gretchen Bleiler just couldn't get enough snowboarding. And the beautiful afternoon, amid the towering Alps beneath a bright blue sky, became the most glorious day of their athletic careers. Teter, looking carefree, soared and spun gracefully to a triumph worthy of an Olympic gold medal in the women's halfpipe.

If the X Games' women's superpipe competition was a barometer for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, put Australia's Torah Bright atop the podium. And place a large order of painkillers for a powerful U.S. contingent, which has been favored to claim at least two medals at the Vancouver Games but took some lumps Friday. Bright was brilliant and smooth in posting a winning run that included a backside 360, a switch-backside 720, a 540 McTwist, or back-flip, and a Cab 720. Her winning score: 91.33.
