Snowboarder Red Gerard became the first American gold medal victor at the 2018 Winter Olympic on Saturday in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Indeed, Gerard's third run was worthy of a holy s-.

McMorris's fellow Canadian, Max Parrot, the last snowboarder of the day, then bumped him to third with a brilliant final run that netted a score of 86.00, falling just short of the gold.

He becomes the youngest USA snowboarder ever to win an Olympic medal since the sport made its Olympic debut 20 years ago. Gerard looks up to Kotsenburg, not for his medal but for his style.

Gerard was Team USA's only hope for slopestyle as he was the sole American to qualify for the final, and he certainly delivered.

His slopestyle title marks a triumphant start to his Olympic career, which began in Pyeongchang for this year's Winter Games, and also makes him the youngest American to medal in a snowboard event at the Olympics.

In Sunday's final, Gerard had falls on his first two runs and was 11th out of 12 riders after scoring 43.33 and 46.40.

Despite the event being aired on a television delay, NBC's broadcasted every word, which probably pumped up every American watching at home even more.
