Crimson Gerard Wins First US Medal At Pyeongchang Winter Olympics

Pyeonchang's coastal location on the western side of the Korean Peninsula and near the Sea of Japan

Lim Hyojun of South Korea won gold, followed by Sjinkie Knegt of the Netherlands and Semen Elistratov of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

Biney was born in Ghana and moved to the a 5-year-old. Sandbech, the 2014 Olympic silver medalist behind upset champion Sage Kotsenburg, put his left arm around the latest American surprise.

The top six boarders from each heat progress to the final.

On those three jumps, Gerard landed a switch backside 1260 on an angled kicker to the side.

He won USA's first medal of the 2018 Olympics despite starting in last place. He is the sixth of seven children; he has four brothers and two sisters. Gerard leaned over the fence and chatted with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach in a conversation surely he would be sharing later in the crowded media zone. He got off to a poor start as he botched his first run, finishing with a score of 43.33.

"I did expect it to hold a little longer than it did because that run had all the biggest tricks that all the other guys did". "That's up to the judges". In the video, you can hear Gerard mutter, "Oh, god, this is scary", before the crowd erupts when his final score, 87.17, is revealed and all he has the breath for is a "What the fuck?" and a drawn-out "Hoooly shiiiiit!" In the meantime, though, they are just focused on enjoying his first gold medal.

Tran finished fourth in the second semifinal.

Teen Gerard wins slopestyle snowboarding for USA's 1st gold medal
Teammates Mark McMorris and Max Parrot won silver and bronze respectively while American Red Gerard captured the gold medal. Gerard totaled 87.16 points in three runs to take the gold, beating Max Parrot of Canada to the second place in 86.00.

It could have been Marcus Kleveland, the first man to land a quad cork, trying to become the first Norwegian to win an Olympic snowboarding title.

The Korean women's hockey team, the first in Olympic history to combine players from North and South, was defeated 8-0 by Switzerland on Saturday in its debut game.

There was a very worrying moment for fellow Swede Mans Hedberg, who crashed on the final feature.

In the slopestyle, Canada's Mark McMorris staked an early claim for the most inspirational story of the Games after taking bronze - just 11 months after a near-fatal crash.

It also would have been redemption for Canada, which had the talent to sweep the podium in Sochi. "It was awesome", he said about the Canadian favorites whom he beat.

Parrot was the last competitor of the day.

McMorris's remarkable feat after cheating death did not go unnoticed by United States ski "queen" Lindsey Vonn, who tweeted a split photo, one half of the Canadian in a hospital bed with numerous tubes attached to him and the other showing him smiling and a superimposed bronze medal.
