Canada's Max Parrot reacts after completing his run in the men's slopestyle finals at Phoenix Snow Park in Pyeongchang, South Korea on February 11, 2018.
Norwegians Staale Sandbech and Markus Kleveland slipped up during their last shots, too, leaving only Parrot in Gerard's way.
Gerard shook Bach's hand, said nice to meet you, and trotted back toward the finish area where the three men who were supposed to beat him took the final three runs of the competition.

His medal came on an eventful day after an quake triggered an alert, winds disrupted events and a fire warning was issued on a day of more sub-zero cold that left athletes and spectators shivering.
