Parrot, McMorris win silver and bronze in men's slopestyle for Canada

11 February 2018

The 17-year-old snowboarder took home gold on Sunday morning (February 11) while competing in slopestyle snowboarding in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

"It's frustrating, it's disappointing and I can't really explain the Dutch sweep again", Blondin said.

What followed was an arduous recovery process, including 10 days in the hospital, a liquid diet that lasted six weeks and hours of daily physical therapy.

Gerard is now the youngest American man to win any medal at the Winter Olympics since 1928.

"I'm on the podium and I probably shouldn't even be here", McMorris said.

Gerard's second run earned just a 57.11, but his finals status was all but confirmed after the first run.

Ben Simmons is salty about getting snubbed as All-Star injury replacement
However, his response on Thursday to a tweet that shamed the National Basketball Association for choosing Walker over Simmons was fairly ambiguous.

He turned to hug his family members, including his brothers who had introduced him to the sport at the age of two, as the crowd went wild with excitement.

Fans quickly took to Twitter to praise Gerard, whose real name is Redmond Gerard, for his wonderful feat.

Despite his rough start in the final, Gerard paused to pose for photos with fans after his first run, a sign that he was following the advice of his mother, Jen.

"It just didn't come around", he said. He capped the run with a clean triple-cork 1440.

The event started nearly 40 minutes late due to a "technical maintenance" issue, however, the competitors did not seem concerned by the delay or the foggy conditions as they produced some stunning runs across the slope, featuring three rails at the start before three jumps. He fell in his first two runs but nailed his third run to move into second place with a score of 86.00.

"I feel absolutely insane right now", Gerard said following the event. "You can't fall a third straight time, '" he said.

But I think we also have to say the goal is a mistake. "I enjoy myself and I'm just trying to be happy". Newcastle United recorded an excellent 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

"I was just really excited that I landed a run", he admits. That result pushed McMorris into the bronze medal spot.

McMorris has battled significant injuries throughout his career. Yulia Galysheva of Kazakhstan won bronze. Parrot finished one point shy of Gerard's final score.

Krueger made his break for glory with little more than a lap to go, striking out on his own and leaving the rest of the field struggling. "So I'm glad I can be in the position I am to motivate". "In the air on the last jump, I was thinking, 'Don't blow it. Let's not ruin it on the last jump".

There was a very worrying moment for fellow Swede Mans Hedberg, who crashed on the final feature. Tyler Nicholson of North Bay, Ont., was seventh and Sebastien Toutant of L'Assomption, Que., was 11th.

The women's slopestyle was scheduled to begin on Monday 1:30 p.m. local time (11:30 p.m. EST on Sunday) and was cancelled shortly after 2:00 p.m. The 23-year-old produced two spectacular runs, the highest scoring of which was graded 87.36 by the judges.
