He won USA's first medal of the 2018 Olympics despite starting in last place.

"My emotions are insane", he said after his win.

The Regina snowboarder was hospitalized last March after a backcountry crash near Whistler, unsure that his career would continue because his injuries were so severe.

Following a snowboarding accident a year ago, McMorris was fighting for his life after breaking 17 bones and suffering a collapsed lung and ruptured spleen. Gerard will ride in the finals on Sunday.

"I'm sure it's a ton", he said. I just told myself that I want to land a run...

Canadian slopestyle superstar Mark McMorris, who held the lead for most of the competition before Gerard's final run, bobbled on his final lap. But, unfazed, he put together a spectacular, clean run on his third and final trip down the obstacle-laden mountain and picked up a score of 87.16.




"It just didn't come around", he said. "I mean, I guess I've done it so much it just kind of feels pretty natural to me now, but it's definitely a pretty cool feeling, I would say".

He fell short of the top-six by less than three points, finishing ninth in the best-of-two qualifying competition. McMorris took third after putting up a score of 85.20 in his second run. "You can't fall a third straight time, '" he said. I think the judges really liked that. Jaelin Kauf, a 21-year-old originally from Alta, Wyo., who grew up skiing at Grand Targhee Resort, advanced to this mornings womens moguls finals (live coverage is at 3:30 a.m.).

Gerard, renowned for his prowess on rails - thanks in partly to the terrain park in the backyard of his family's Silverthorne home - wove a creative line through the course's byzantine rail section, which offered myriad opportunities for riders.

Krueger made his break for glory with little more than a lap to go, striking out on his own and leaving the rest of the field struggling.

McMorris slowly rebuilt his strength and mobility by doing physio work in four-week intervals.

Hamelin was initially given sixth position in the men's 1,500 metre final before being disqualified.

Canadians Tyler Nicholson and Sebastien Toutant placed 7th and 11th respectively. "When I did it I was, "OK, take one lap, two laps, three laps and just get into it again, and try to do it on the final lap".
