American Gerard wins men's snowboard slopestyle at PyeongChang Olympics

Mark McMorris 24 who also won a bronze medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi Russia was also seriously injured in 2016 and needed a metal rod surgically implanted in his leg

Snowboarders Max Parrot and Mark McMorris claimed Canada's first medals of the 2018 Winter Olympics Saturday night in the men's slopestyle event in Pyeongchang.

It was 17-year-old American, Redmond Gerard, who did what Toutant couldn't, delivering a near flawless final run for a score of 87.16 and a gold medal position. His score of 87.16 was just enough to slip by Parrot.

"I'm on a cloud even thought there's not really clouds there, but yeah, it's my first Olympic medal, it's a little check next to that, it's mission accomplished for me here, and I'm really happy", Parrot said. He could have tried to execute a series of much more hard tricks, but elected to be a little bit more cautious and put together a run that gave him a score of 85.2 points.
