Max Parrot leads all four Canadians into men's slopestyle final

Max Parrot leads all four Canadians into men's slopestyle final

Parrot, 23, captured silver with his best score of 86.00 while McMorris, 24, captured bronze with his best score of 85.20. Teammate Max Parrot stepped up and scored 83.45. - Regina snowboarder Mark McMorris on winning a bronze medal in slopestyle less than a year after suffering life-threatening injuries in a backcountry crash.

"I feel really awesome on my board", Toutant said after his runs under cloudly skies and amid strong gusts of wind. As soon as the helicopter got there (90 minutes later) I went to sleep.

Champion Redmond Gerard of the USA (C), second-placed Max Parrot of Canada (L) and third-placed Mark Mcmorris of Canada pose for group pohotos after the Men's Snowboard Slopestyle at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games at the Phoenix Snow Park in PyeongChang, South Korea, on February 11, 2018. The competition was fierce but our athletes once again showed incredible perseverance and blew us away with fantastic performances that resulted in Canada's first medals of the Games! "I was just so frustrated and so scared for my second run, because imagine if that happened for my second run? I'm just lucky to be here".

Parrot, from Quebec, and McMorris, from Saskatchewan, were two of four Canadian boarders in the slopestyle finals, which was a field of 12.

While they're both Canadians, the rivalry between Parrot and McMorris is undeniable.

Gerard, a 17-year-old from Silverthorne, Colorado, drilled his third and final run on the chilly but sun-splashed course at Phoenix Snow Park. He said his goal here was to do that every time, and he's now one for one. His score of 87.16 was just enough to slip by Parrot.

After watching the judges favour a clean but safe performance by Gerard, Parrot made a tactical call on the fly to scale back the degree of difficulty. The final rounds will go Tuesday morning. "I mean, might as well, we're here, it's the Olympics", he said. "I saw Red landing his run. I was puking. I thought I was going to die - literally".

The English-to-snowboard translator confirms that this means it would be very good indeed.
