Canada's Brady Leman wins gold in Olympic ski cross

Chris-Del-Bosco_2

Canada's Brady Leman banished his Winter Olympic Games demons as he clinched the men's ski cross gold medal in a dramatic final race at Pyeongchang 2018 today. The reason is that Leman was unable to reach the top five in any of the eight World Cup events this season and settled for 13th in the World Cup standings.

"I wish Kevin could have been with me on the podium but maybe next time he can have the same feeling that I do now after being fourth at a Games", Leman added.

"This blows them out of the water".

"The other two were in a sense always disappointing".

There was no French skier in the final four years on from a podium clean-sweep in Sochi.

Ridzik picked himself up and raced down for bronze well behind the leaders.

"So it's a tough one to swallow, but I've had such a great experience regardless of results at all my Games".

Leman was able to get out in front and stay out of trouble in the men's ski cross big final and won the event.

Montreal's Chris Del Bosco crashed in an earlier heat and was taken to hospital where he was conscious and stable.

Canada's Chris Del Bosco is carried away after crashing on the men's ski cross course on February 21, 2018.
