Millennium man Gerard makes history with Olympic first

Millennium man Gerard makes history with Olympic first

The qualifying round was scheduled to take place after the conclusion of the men's event, which saw 17-year-old Red Gerard secure gold for the first usa medal in PyeongChang. The 17-year-old Gerard overcame a fall on his first two runs and rebounded with a score of 87.16 on his third and final run to leap onto the top of medal table.

The two Canadians finished behind 17-year-old American Redmond Gerard, who gave the US its first gold of 2018 with a score of 87.16.

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

A pair of Canadians, Max Parrot and Mark McMorris, finished with silver and bronze, respectively. The pair finished behind Redmond Gerard of the USA who won gold with his best score of 87.16.

Gerard competes in the men's snowboard slopestyle finals.

Regina's Mark McMorris held first place until Parrot surpassed him.

- Perrine Laffont put France in the medals column at the Winter Olympics, skiing through the bumps and snow to take the women's moguls title. He thought, briefly, about taking the main jump, but said his spin - a double-cork 1080 - off the main hit would not impress the judges.

After two runs of the slopestyle event, Gerard was at the bottom of the pack in last place. He qualified with a second-run score of 86.83 points. "When he does good then I want to do good and I am sure it is vice-versa for him", McMorris said.

But it's even nicer for the man (boy, I guess?) who did it: 17-year-old Red Gerrard, a surprise victor of the men's snowboard slopestyle competition. He broke a rib less than two weeks before the Sochi Games and still managed to win slopestyle bronze.

"I've never really found myself thinking about [the Olympics]", Gerard said previous year, according to NBC. "I got a break in the wind and somehow made it through".

A day of extremes started with a surprise natural disaster alert, after a magnitude 4.7 quake rattled eastern South Korea, with its epicenter about 260km from the Games. The average GPA of U.S Ski & Snowboard athletes is 3.6, and they have Monday-Thursday class schedules that leave three days to spend practicing at any of the 10 ski resorts that are less than an hour away from campus. He has a chance at a second medal when he competes in big air on February 21.
