This weekend 17-year-old Red Gerard won the U.S.'s first gold medal of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the snowboarding event "slopestyle".

Girard was in last place after his first two runs but had a third run so phenomenal that he scored higher than all the other snowboarders, making him the youngest American male athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics since 1928.
