Bright performance has silver-lining

IF TORAH Bright was disappointed at losing out by just 0.25 points to American Kaitlyn Farrington in the women's halfpipe final yesterday, it didn't show.

The 27-year-old (pictured) joined Dale Begg-Smith as Australia's most successful Winter Olympian when she added a silver medal to the halfpipe gold she won in Vancouver four years ago.

"I really don't care because that happens in judged sports," she said. "I don't care about the colour of the medal. Life isn't about winning, it's about putting your best foot forward. It's about sharing your light and I'm happy, I'm so happy to be here. This is for Australia, it's for my family, it's for my brother, it's for everybody who takes joy from what I do."

Bright will now turn her attention to the snowboard cross on Sunday, her third event at these Games in Sochi.

She finished seventh in the slope-style last Sunday but will be hoping for a medal in the cross, which sees boarders go head-to-head in a race.
