Winter Olympics: Who is Red Gerard?

Gold Brings Whirlwind Tour, Opportunities For Red Gerard

Brother Brendan, the one who realized the farm was a snowboard park waiting to be made, is also a pro snowboarder. Not so much for the Americans.

Gold medalist Redmond Gerard of the United States poses during the victory ceremony for the Snowboard Men's Slopestyle Final during the PyeongChang Olympic Games on February 11, 2018. Download the Team USA app today. "I'm happy with second place".

The qualifying round was supposed to narrow the field from 27 competitors to 12.

The 27-year-old Scot, at his third Olympics, was behind only Kruger, who had a clear lead, as the skiers entered the stadium for the final time, with 3.75km remaining.

He had earlier managed just 43.33 points in his first run and 46.40 in his second. "But things like that in snowboarding happen. I just look for different lines", he said, draped in an American flag after dozens of interviews with global media at the base of the slopestyle course.

"The rails are really high", Parrot said.

Canada was still looking for its first medal after Saturday's competition at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but big results from the country's snowboarders, curlers and lugers suggested that a trip to the podium would not be far off. He relishes the chance to flex his mastery in the maze. "It takes a lot of strategy", he said.


While it can be assumed that most of his family is there with him in South Korea given he's younger than eighteen, it's great to see his friends back home in Colorado cheering for him.

After a few words of encouragement from his Burton team manager, Frankie Chapin, Gerard dropped into a course that might as well have been built for him.

Teenage snowboarder Red Gerard yesterday became the first Winter Olympics champion born this millennium as high winds caused disruption at the Pyeongchang Games. "But this is a insane course", he said. "There are so many rails, it looks like a jungle".

Gerard will have another chance to add to the fun on February 24, when he will compete again in Big Air. Mack, for one, is excited to test his "Bloody Dracula" trick, which has him spinning and grabbing his board with both hands behind his back.

"It does feel a little bit like a win", he said with a smile.

"I'm just really glad to be able to snowboard, and to snowboard at this level", he said after qualifying. - Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva said there was room for improvement in her performance despite setting a new world record on Sunday in the women's short program.
