Too bad the windy conditions hurt the Canadians, especially McMorris, who is technically superior to the others, as you just could not execute the jumps the same way as during quallies, so maybe they should have postponed it like the ladies to a day with less wind. Credit to the 17 year old American, he had a great run and took advantage. Max Parrot going last dummied down his last run as he saw the judges were also rewarding clean rides and less on degree of difficulty, and that got him the silver medal.

I really enjoy watching this sport, and can't wait for the one with bigger air.

@Brian I wouldn't necessarily say he had to dumb down his run because of what the judges were doing. He had the exact same crash his first two runs on the second jump, so he had to modify his plan to ensure that he finished, because finishing clean would put him in the best position to get a medal. Regardless, what they are capable of doing is amazing. Each time I held my breathe amazed that they could squeeze one more spin into an already ridiculous jump.
