Teenage Snowboarder Wins First 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. 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)

Only a 17 yo could have body language like that. "Whatever, NBD, I do this every day."
