"I feel absolutely insane right now", Gerard said following the event. I have ate some serious crap back there, for sure. - Switzerland's curler Martin Rios reveals his main goal for Pyeongchang 2018. He broke his jaw and left arm, suffered a ruptured spleen, rib fractures, a stable pelvic fracture and a collapsed left lung. He spent 10 days in hospital and was on a liquid diet for six weeks.
The run pushed him to the top of a finals laden with four Norwegians and four Canadians - the superpowers of slopestyle.
"I'm on the podium and I probably shouldn't even be here", McMorris said.
"But you know, judges have their own minds and I'm super-psyched!"
After botching the first run, Gerard wiped out in his second run and seemed to tweak his back, causing the commentators to wonder if he'd be 100 percent for his third and final run.
"I'm happy we had three days of practice because this course is insane", Gerard said. Parrot finished one point shy of Gerard's final score.
Mark McMorris of Canada reacts after seeing the results of his second run during the menâs slopestyle final.
"It just didn't come around", he said. I wanted him to land a run for himself, for his confidence and well-being, but for all of them too. "I'm happy I was able to do that and happy they got to join me on this experience".
"What can you say?"

McMorris has battled significant injuries throughout his career.
Krista Parmakoski of Finland won the bronze.
He broke his femur at a competition two years later and again returned earlier than expected.
However, it was Canada's Parrot who secured the highest scoring run of the second heat. "It was like, 'Alright, well I'm having fun doing it, ' and I'm like, 'I get to do online school now and not go to actual school.' And it's like I'm sticking with it and I ain't got nothing else going". "So I'm glad I can be in the position I am to motivate".
The 34-year-old is a bit of a Renaissance man, excelling not only in shirtlessness but in taekwondo; his Summer Olympics sport, and cross-country skiing, his Winter Olympics sport. - Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva said there was room for improvement in her performance despite setting a new world record on Sunday in the women's short program.
