Canada is on the board when it comes to medals at the Pyongchang Olympics.
On Sunday morning (Saturday night in Canada), Max Parrot took silver in men’s slopestyle with Regina’s Mark McMorris capturing the bronze.
Parrot fell in his first two runs but nailed his third to bump McMorris out of the silver medal position with a score of 86.00. McMorris had a score of 85.2 in his second of three runs, but fell on his third allowing American Red Gerard to win with a score of 87.16.
This is the second Olympic bronze for the 24-year-old McMorris, who is coming back from life-threatening injuries suffered in a backcountry crash less than a year ago.
He suffered numerous injuries including breaks to his jaw and left arm, a ruptured spleen, a stable pelvic fracture, and a collapsed left lung in that accident making many wonder if he would be able to compete in Pyongchang.
