Winter Olympics: Teenager Red Gerard wins first United States medal

Posted February 12, 2018

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 US medal in PyeongChang.

The 17-year-old snowboarder became the youngest American to medal in a snowboarding event at the Olympics by winning the slopestyle. Gerards gold is the first Team USA medal in Pyeongchang. And after a qualifying run that yielded this hilarious CBC commentary, McMorris reached the podium Sunday alongside countryman Max Parrot, who captured silver to give Canada its first two medals of the PyeongChang games.

McMorris had an advantage knowing the score he needed to put up in his final run, but the 2014 bronze medalist under-rotated on a jump and crashed, ensuring he couldn't overtake Gerard.
