It was a banner day for the Stars and Stripes after Team USA captured gold, silver, and bronze for a clean sweep in the Olympic debut of men’s ski slopestyle.
Joss Christensen, who was the only rider in qualifications to earn a 90-plus score, ended his first run with a massive 95.8, allowing him a victory ride, having captured gold before his second and final run.
And Nicholas Goepper put together two solid runs, despite having screws in his wrist, earning bronze with a 92.4, which he received in his first run.
Afterward, the three young men exchanged hugs.
And celebrated on the podium together.
