A Canadian has won a bronze medal in the Men’s Ski Slopestyle event at the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

Freestyle skier Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, 23, of Quebec City earned his first Olympic medal with a best score of 92.40 during his second of three runs.

He was only bested by Norway’s Oystein Braaten (95.00) and the United States’ Nick Goepper (93.60).

Canadians Teal Harle (90.00) and Evan McEachran (89.40) came in at fifth and sixth place, respectively.

This is Beaulieu-Marchand’s second Olympics having also competed in the same event at Sochi 2014. He also won a bronze medal in slopestyle at last year’s Winter X Games in Aspen.

American favourite Gus Kenworthy, who is recovering from an injured hand, came in last at 12th.

With this latest medal, Canada currently sits at fourth place – based on the gold medal rankings – with five gold, five silver, and six bronze, for a total of 16 medals.
