Many eyes across Canada will be on the Winter Olympics Saturday night as Mark McMorris leads a Canadian contingent of four into the men’s slopestyle final.
McMorris, Max Parrot, Tyler Nicholson and Sebastien Toutant all advanced to the final after preliminaries with Parrot and McMorris coming in 1-2.
For the Regina snowboarder, a medal would cap off a comeback of unreal proportions. His Olympic aspirations were on hold for quite a while after suffering numerous injuries in a backcountry crash near Whistler BC last year.
The men’s slopestyle final starts at 7 PM Saskatchewan time which is 8 AM Sunday in South Korea.
