COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) Shaun White finished eighth in slopestyle qualifying Thursday to advance at the U.S. Grand Prix.

Feeling healthy again after recently tweaking his left ankle, White scored 77.2 points on his first run to move on to Friday's final, which will serve as the third of five selection events for the U.S. Olympic team. White also qualified for the halfpipe final on Saturday.

The two-time Olympic champion said he's getting "really fit" training for both events ahead of the Sochi Games.

Billy Morgan of Britain had the top run of the afternoon to finish first in qualifying.

On the women's side, Jamie Anderson turned in the best run to earn a score of 91.4. Anderson is looking to bounce back after falling at an event last weekend in Copper Mountain.
