BEIJING  — Butte native Brad Wilson saw his run at the 2022 Winter Olympics come to a close on Saturday.

The 29-year-old freestyle men's moguls skier finished in 15th place in the second qualifying round to be eliminated from the event. The top 10 placers advanced to the final. Wilson, a 2011 Butte Central graduate, earned a score of 72.94 in the second run after failing to finish in the first qualifier.
