Sebastien Toutant from Canada posted a 174.25 score to capture the gold medal in the 2018 Winter Olympics' men's snowboarding big air competition Saturday (Friday night in the U.S.) at Alpensia Ski Jumping Stadium in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Heading into the third jump, Canada's Sebastien Toutant was in the lead with Kyle Mack (USA) and Billy Morgan (Great Britain) hanging in the second and third positions, but it was still really anyone's game.
Toutant accumulated his score over the first two runs and failed to land his final attempt, leaving the door open for another snowboarder to steal the gold medal. McMorris fell on his first jump and was in eighth. Mack used his third jump to try to capitalize on Toutant's fall, but he was unable to stick his landing, nabbing the silver medal instead.
American Jamie Anderson won silver in the women's big air event on Thursday, with Anna Gasser of Austria taking gold. Gerard's second run put him in fourth place, but he faltered on his final attempt.
And Toutant came within inches of a podium-worthy performance himself at slopestyle, just missing the landing on his last trick after an excellent final run. "In the moment I was bummed out, but I'm glad I get to show up again, and maybe this time I can get a medal".
The No. 1 qualifier favored to win gold, Carlos Garcia Knight of New Zealand, wiped out on two of his three runs and finished second to last.
