Teenage Snowboarder Wins Gold for U.S.

The first gold medal for the U.S. in the Pyeongchang Olympics has been won by a 17-year-old in an event you probably haven't seen before. Red Gerard came from last place to gold in his final run in the snowboard slopestyle event. He is the first American born in the 21st century to win gold at a Winter Games. Watch him soar in this crazy sport.

You can see the performance with English commentary here, as well as those of the Canadians Max Parrot and Mark McMorris, who won silver and bronze. -via reddit

I watched that and was trying to figure who is "crazier", the snowboarders or the lugers. I guess it has to be the snowboarders for all those wild flips and stuff.
