According to WILX-TV 10, Redmond "Red" Gerard of the United States has won the men's snowboard slope-style gold medal in the Pyeongchang Olympics.

The 17 year old prodigy saved his best effort for his third and final run, scoring an impressive 87, and becoming the youngest American ever to medal in a snowboarding event in the Olympics.

Young "Red" said, "I cannot believe what just happened.  That was enough for me just to land a run but to get first is crazy."
