In a snowboarding accident previous year, McMorris broke 17 bones and suffered a collapsed lung and ruptured spleen, leaving him fighting for his life. Gerard will ride in the finals on Sunday.

Snowboarder Max Parrot collects the silver medal in the slopestyle event at the Games in South Korea.

"I'm on the podium and I probably shouldn't even be here", McMorris said.

The slopestyle event consists of three runs per individual, with the best score of three taken into account for final standings.

The start list is in reverse order of qualifying, so Parrot will go last in each of the three runs, with top score determining the victor. McMorris fell in his final trip down the course, a slight under-rotation on his last jump doing him in. The men's super-G and other speed racing events will be moved back a day, to Friday, the International Ski Federation (FIS) said. Whenever I am sad I always go make myself smile again.

"I just think day by day, so there was never really a time when I was like, 'I want to be an Olympian, '" Gerard told Ed Stoner of the Aspen Times in November.

"Red, I am so hyped for you!" his message said.

A team spokesperson said on Saturday that Blouin may still compete and that she is still recovering from the hard fall. "I had a lot of pressure and my heart was beating really fast before starting on the course".

The qualifying portion of the women's snowboard slopestyle competition at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang has been cancelled due to strong winds at the Phoenix Snow Park complex.

McMorris has battled significant injuries throughout his career. Yulia Galysheva of Kazakhstan won bronze to give her country its eighth winter medal since it started competing separately after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

"It's not easy. The last two years I haven't snowboarded that much". "Not being able to really talk or anything like that".

However, it was Canada's Parrot who secured the highest scoring run of the second heat. As soon as the helicopter got there (90 minutes later) I went to sleep.

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.

Canadians Tyler Nicholson and Sebastien Toutant placed 7th and 11th respectively.

In long-track speedskating, Ivanie Blondin was in a medal position late into the women's 3,000 metres before being bumped down to sixth by skaters in the final two pairs. Organizers made a decision to schedule a two-run final instead on Monday.
