It's gold for Sage Kotsenburg of  the United States in the slopestyle snowboarding final.

Kotsenburg scored a 93.50 on his first run down the mountain, and that was good enough to hold off Staale Sandbech of Norway and Canada's Mark McMorris.

Kotsenburg established his position on the third run of the day, and Sandbech was the only other snowboarder to score over 90.00. McMorris, despite broken ribs, had a courageous second run and appeared to deserve a better mark than the 88.75 he was given by the judges.

This was the first time slopestyle snowboarding was an official event in the Olympics, and Kotsenburg ruled the day.
