The youngest competitor in the event had taken Gold and got the ball rolling for Team USA in Pyeongchang after they won no medals on the first full day of the Winter Olympics. "The wind was really bad, and the first two runs it was pretty tough", he said, "but we got a nice little break on the third and I'm just happy I got to land".

It was the United States' first gold at the Pyeongchang Games and Gerard made the most of it. Red Gerard, competing in the slopestyle snowboarding event, flipped and twirled his way to victory in a dizzying routine that bumped him from last place out of the eleven remaining athletes to first.

Chris Mazdzer added to Team USA's medal haul on Sunday when he won the country's first medal in men's singles luge, a silver.

Gerard is known for his creativity, which helped earn him a score of 87.16 from the judges in his final run.

McMorris broke his jaw and left arm, ruptured his spleen, suffered a pelvic fracture, rib fractures and a collapsed lung as a result of the crash.

Team USA now holds two medals in the 2018 Winter Olympics, trailing Norway (with eight), the Netherlands (holding five), Germany and Canada (with four each).

"I think a unified one is stronger than two divided ones. I mean, that's all I really came here for - just to land a run", he said after qualifiers. He took gold despite falling on his first two runs, posting scores under 50 points.

Slopestyle was one of the events that did not fall victim to high winds on Sunday, when the showpiece men's downhill skiing was aborted until Thursday following a pre-dawn meeting of ski chiefs. "When he does good then I want to do good and I am sure it is vice-versa for him", McMorris said.

Gerard raised the bar with his backside triple cork 1440 during his final run to take the lead off McMorris and the Canadian couldn't respond, falling on the final kicker. Tyler Nicholson of North Bay, Ont., was seventh and Sebastien Toutant of L'Assomption, Que., was 11th.
