American 17-year-old Red Gerard has taken home the gold medal in the men's snowboard slopestyle with an incredible run on Saturday in PyeongChang. On Saturday afternoon, the 17-year-old from Silverthorne, Colorado, became the lone USA rider to qualify into Sunday's snowboard slopestyle finals, while his mom, dad and all six of his siblings cheered him on from the friends and family section at the bottom of the course. Parrot finished one point shy of Gerard's final score. He struggled to land tricks cleanly in his first two runs, and was sitting in a distant 11th place before his third and final run. He's also the second straight American to win the event, which made its Olympic debut in 2014. Gerard has done a great job at making some memories and setting records the first night of the Olympics. Teenager Red Gerard created his own piece of Olympics' history after winning the men's snowboarding slopestyle.
"I feel absolutely insane right now", Gerard said following the event.
"With Corning dropping first, that's most the time what the judge's set the score off of and he definitely got a little underscored, personally I think, which is quite a bummer", said Mack, who lives a few doors down from Corning in Silverthorne.
The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, the first Games held in South Korea in 30 years, officially opened on Friday with fireworks, song and symbolism featured amid celebrations of light, peace, and harmony.
Gerard won gold in slopestyle, a challenging event based on the creative spins and moves of X Games athletes along with the athleticism required in any Olympic sport. "I was just so happy to land the run and to make it to the podium".
While talking to The Player's Tribune, Gerard told us what we already knew about snowboarding. "I had a lot of pressure and my heart was beating really fast before starting on the course". "The rails were tight, but we all have to ride the same course and adapt", said USA rider Ryan Stassel, who fell in both of his runs in the first heat. He chose off-path features on the rail and jump sections that others ignored.
A mention, too, to Sam Underhill for his incredible last-ditch tackle which saved a certain Sam Williams try in the second half. England will be enthused by the manner of their start and the individual performances posted by Mike Brown and Owen Farrell .
