Gerard Wins 1st US Winter Gold

17-year-old Red Gerard has won the United States’ first gold medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics, edging Canadians Max Parrot and Mark McMorris in men’s slopestyle snowboarding. The Silverthorne, Colorado native drilled his third and final run on the chilly but sun-splashed course at Phoenix Snow Park. Gerard is the second straight American to win the event, which made its Olympic debut four years ago.
