Pyeonchang's coastal location on the western side of the Korean Peninsula and near the Sea of Japan

The first American medal of the 2018 Olympics belongs to 17-year-old Red Gerard, who won gold in the men's snowboard slopestyle on Sunday morning.

He became the second-youngest gold medal victor in an individual men's event at the Winter Games, behind only Finn Toni Nieminen, who won the ski jumping aged 16 in 1992.

The win was a dramatic one. after falling on his first two runs and dropping to 11th place.

The 17-year-old from Silverthorne, Colorado defeated Canadians Max Parrot and Mark McMorris after putting up a score of 87.16 in his third run.

Gleirscher, who hadn't even won a World Cup event before the Games, claimed Austria's first luge gold in 50 years after Germany's Felix Loch, the defending champion, made a big mistake on his final run when he was leading the competition and ended up in fifth place. Whenever I am sad I always go make myself smile again.

Despite his rough start in the final, Gerard paused to pose for photos with fans after his first run, a sign that he was following the advice of his mother, Jen.

Reg E Cathey Dead At The Age Of 59
Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) February 10, 2018 We lost a sweet, sweet man and a sweet, sweet, SWEET artist today. Brilliant actor, humorist & friend! - David Simon (@AoDespair) February 9, 2018 Reg Cathey was one of a kind.

It could have been Marcus Kleveland, the first man to land a quad cork, trying to become the first Norwegian to win an Olympic snowboarding title. "I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow", Gerard said.

Mark McMorris completed his remarkable comeback from injury and was in a gold medal position heading into the final run. "There are a lot of creative lines up there", said Gerard, who boasts a finish corral cheering section of 14-plus boisterous friends and family in South Korea, waving giant pictures of his face alongside American flags.

"You know, just landing a run in general and then being lucky enough to get on the podium and then to win is insane", Gerard explained. "I never realized how big this is".

Canada is on the board when it comes to medals at the Pyongchang Olympics. "I have the craziest clip recorded of us watching you, but there is no wifi and my data sucks here in Italy".

Kotsenburg retired at age 23, choosing the filming route over attempting to defend the first Olympic slopestyle title. "That is what I will take away from today, but of course I would have preferred a better result". I wanted him to land a run for himself, for his confidence and well-being, but for all of them too.
