Canada's Brady Leman wins gold in Olympic men's skicross


Ridzik recovered enough to finish behind Leman and Switzerland's Marc Bischofberger.

Bjoergen now has won 14 career medals at the Winter Olympic Games, passing Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjourndalen for the most ever.

"This blows them out of the water".

Canada's Kevin Drury didn't finish the final, which followed a competition which had been marred by a series of heavy slams.

Ridzik and Drury's crash was not the only accident during the men's ski cross in Pyeongchang.

It is the first organised protest of the youth-led anti-gun movement that has swept the USA since the attack. The sales of the AR-15 modern sporting rifle, in particular, have significantly increased.

"The other two were in a sense always disappointing".

There was no French skier in the final four years on from a podium clean-sweep in Sochi.

"Fourth at the Games is a big accomplishment, but at the same time you're the first guy who doesn't get a medal".

Marc Bischofberger of Switzerland won the silver medal and Sergey Ridzik of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation won the bronze medal. "I actually aimed for the gold but I'm happy with the bronze because I haven't been on the podium before".

The heats of the event also proved to be crash-ridden, with Canadian Christopher Delbosco and France's Terence Tchiknavorian both suffering serious injuries.
