American Redmond Gerard became the second youngest gold medalist in an individual men's event at the Winter Olympics by winning the snowboard slopestyle champion at the Phoenix Snow Park here on Sunday.
"It was awesome. I just told myself that I want to land a run and I was a little bummed on my first two runs because I fell a couple of times," Gerard said. "I'm just so happy that it all worked out."
Gerard preserved the American streak of winning gold in slopestyle, which was added to the Olympics schedule in 2014.
"It feels incredible. I'm just really happy that I got to land a run and I'm just really excited right now," Gerard added.
