Yesterday, I attended the first ever men’s snowboard big air final! This was a brand-new event in featured in this year’s winter Olympic games and the arena was packed. There were many fans and spectators from USA and Canada there to cheer on their athletes. It seemed that everyone was excited to see this new event unfold. It was amazing to watch the big jumps and tricks that the athletes performed and even more exciting to watch them land. The different scoring format from the more traditional snowboarding events made it so it was very hard to guess who would take home a medal. At the end of the event Canada’s Sebastien Toutant won gold, USA’s Kyle Mack won silver, and Great Britain’s Billy Morgan won bronze. I am so happy I got to attend the event and witness the excitement and I hope to see this event in future Olympic programs.
