Canada’s Alex Beaulieu-Marchand misses slopestyle podium
TORONTO – Canada’s Alex Beaulieu-Marchand failed to medal Thursday in the men’s slopestyle skiing finals after the U.S. swept the podium.
Joss Christensen took gold with a best score of 95.80, while Gus Kenworthy took silver with a score of 93.60 and Nicholas Goepper grabbed bronze with a score of 92.40.
The U.S. is the second team to complete a podium sweep at the 2014 Winter Games.
The Netherlands claimed all three medals in the men’s 5,000m speed skating event.
It wasn’t a strong outing for the Quebec native, who posted a score of 5.00 in his first run in the finals after having some difficulty at the top of the park.
Beaulieu-Marchand started off strong in the final run of the event, only to crash out on the second jump at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
Beaulieu-Marchand finished 12th with a best score of 21.40.
