Slovakia defeats Germany, will face U.S.

Slovakia beat Germany by a score 4-0 to advance to the knockout stage against the United States. The Slovakians started group play 0-2, but then won their next four games to close out play at 4-2.

Against Germany, Libor Hudacek, Peter Cehlarik, Michal Kristof and Marek Hrivik all scored during the contest. The game didn’t go without incident. The two teams will leave with bad blood, as Germany’s David Wolf had a cheap hit as the game was winding down. He was tossed with just two minutes left and assessed a game misconduct and match penalty.

Breakout star Su Yiming wins snowboard big air gold

China's Su Yiming continued his breakout performance on the Olympic stage, capturing the gold medal in men's snowboard big air.

Su, 17, was largely unknown entering this season but has quickly turned into one of the stars of the Games for the host nation, starting with his silver-medal performance in slopestyle earlier this month.

After stomping his first two runs, a frontside 1800 with a tail grab and a backside triple cork 1800, Su had the big air victory locked up by the time it was his turn to take a final run. Norway's Mons Roisland and Canada's Max Parrot, who was awarded gold over Su in slopestyle, took the other two spots on the podium behind Su.

Although Red Gerard was the top U.S. finisher in fifth, it was Chris Corning who stole the show by landing a quad cork 1800 on his opening run. Corning was the only rider to land a quad – Mark McMorris attempted it twice and fell both times – but he was unable to put down another solid score to get into a medal position.

Results: Men's Snowboard Big Air

🥇 Su Yiming (CHN)
🥈 Mons Roisland (NOR)
🥉 Max Parrot (CAN)

Gu clinches second medal at Games in freeski slopestyle final

Switzerland’s Mathilde Germaud won the slopstyle event, bettering her 2018 silver finish. Germaud was the 12th and final qualifier to make the event. Mathilde earned a score of 85.56 in her second run, which would just edge out China’s Eileen Gu. Gu put down a solid 86.23 run on her third and final run. Estonia’s Kelly Sildaru would round out the podium after her first run would hold up with a score of 82.06. Her bronze medal is Estonia’s first ever Winter Olympic medal outside of cross-country skiing.

The Americans were supposed to have two athletes in the final. However, Maggie Voisin is the only one to compete, finishing 5th overall. Marin Hamill qualified for the final but did not ski due to an injury she suffered in her second qualifying round. Darian Stevens didn’t qualify for the final, while Caroline Claire didn’t compete after a fall in a training session.

Anna Gasser defends snowboard big air gold

In an exciting and progressive final, Anna Gasser outdueled Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and defended her gold medal in women's snowboard big air.

Gasser and Sadowski-Synnott were separated by just 0.25 points after landing double cork 1080s in opposite directions on their first two runs. That set up a dramatic finale in which both women attempted to improve one of their scores by landing a 1260.

Gasser stomped her cab double cork 1260 to move into lead. Then Sadowski-Synnott fell on her backside double cork 1260 attempt and was unable to better her score, leaving her with silver and clinching the gold for Gasser.

The competition also featured a historic moment when Japan's Reira Iwabuchi attempted a triple, which has never before been landed in a women's competition. Iwabuchi was unable to land it, but her competitors were nevertheless excited by her decision to push the progression of the sport.

🥇 Anna Gasser (AUT)
🥈 Zoi Sadowski-Synnott (NZL)
