Russian Freestyle Skier Wins Bronze in Cross Ski at 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics

Canadian wins gold in skicross after teammate injured in earlier crash

Kevin Drury of Toronto, Ontario crashed in the final and did not finish, after placing third in the seeding round, winning heat five in the elimination round, the quarterfinals and semi-finals.

Marc Bischofberger of Switzerland won the silver medal and Sergey Ridzik of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation won the bronze medal. Instead, Ridzik got back on his feet and finished behind Leman and Switzerland's Marc Bischofberger.

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

His campaign at Vancouver 2010 was over before it started after he broke his leg on the eve of the competition.

Medics had to strap him to a backboard and take him to the hospital.

Interestingly, there was no French skier in the final, just four years on from a podium clean-sweep in Sochi.

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

Ridzik became the 12th medallist for the OAR but the neutral team are still waiting for their first gold.

"This blows them out of the water".

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