2:11 pm
up nineteen medals in total so this from crisis to bouncing back has been a really great start for them felix of course he is also right now eating in the loose standings and he could make that possibly gold medal number four as it's two days and already four gold medals and it's a hero exactly and it's also moved away a bit from germany because there was also a dutch to light then come out he is a dutch speed skating legend he also picked up a gold medal in the five thousand needa speed skating event that's the third straight month and he may he made it into the record books because that hasn't been done before our very own but let's talk about seventeen year old red gerard oh my goodness what a feat yes so he i know his name has been making the headlines as a matter which it is it is a lot of snowboarders actually have a lot of cool a no i don't want a crew nickname so what this is basically not only did he pick up the first gold medal for the united states but what it all came down his entire event came down to
2:12 pm
a he took a very bold and risky move the slope style we're talking yes so what he did was that in slope style you basically you have to three runs and it basically the best one wins so you have to make the best the most impressive run out of every other competitor he already had trained on to but on his third run he decided to pull off the biggest trick and that is in in stillwater talk they call it the back side triple cork fourteen forty exactly what you see on the screen right now and so really complicated. but it's basically four rotations in the air and what makes is also impressive is that the guy wasn't even thinking about the olympics before you know coming here for him it wasn't even on his mind so this was a guy that truly just enjoyed snowboarding and learnt most of his tricks in his own backyard and i guess i felt as as watson and also as a. bronze medalists in the same discipline mark morris an incredible story it is so mcmorris he is a really popular snowboarder he comes from canada and he had
