The gold medal went to the 17 year old American, Redmond Gerard. He could have tried to execute a series of much more hard tricks, but elected to be a little bit more cautious and put together a run that gave him a score of 85.2 points. The Montreal freestyle skier had a chance to become the first woman to defend an Olympic moguls title, and she knew her fast and aggressive final run in Sunday's final would be tough to beat.

In his second run McMorris saved a front side triple followed by a backside triple cork for a score of 85.20 that put him in gold-medal position. Parrot was able to nail his altered run and snag a score of 86.00 and a silver medal, 0.8 points ahead of McMorris, who won bronze.

"I can't believe I got to land my run".

Ted-Jan Bloemen's silver in the 5,000-metre finals was Canada's first men's medal at that distance since Willy Logan's bronze at the 1932 Games in Lake Placid.

"It keeps me up every day and I have a really, really nice team. I was so exhausted I could barely stand on my legs but just taking every risk and giving it all to get ahead". Canada has won nine medals in the history of the Olympic Winter Games in men's snowboarding, but it is the first time that two Canadians landed on the same podium in an Olympic snowboarding event. He was edged off the top of podium by legendary Dutchman Sven Kramer, who broke his own Olympic record to take his third straight gold in the event in six minutes 9.76 seconds.

Silver went to Chris Mazdzer, USA, and bronze to Germany's Johannes Ludwig.

Switzerland has progressed into the mixed doubles semifinals following a dramatic last stone from Jenny Perret secured three points and clinched a 9-8 victory over Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR). "We are just having fun".

In figure skating, ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, women's singles skater Kaetlyn Osmond and pairs stars Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford made sure made sure Canada kept a solid grip of first place in the team event.

It's been a total team effort for Canada so far in the team event.
