U.S. snowboarder Redmond Gerard scored 87.16 points and a gold medal after his third run in men’s slopestyle event on Sunday, February 11, at Phoenix Snow Park, at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Things looked after his two runs, with scores of 43.33 and 46.40, respectively. But he nailed every trick and stomped every landed in the third, for an 87.16.
It was enough to put him ahead of two Canadians: Max Parrot, who won silver with 86.00 points, and defending bronze medallist Mark McMorris, who had 85.20 points.
