Canadian Max Parrot wins gold in men’s slopestyle snowboard

By The Canadian Press

Canadian snowboarder Max Parrot has captured the country’s first gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.

Parrot, from Bromont, Que., won the men’s slopestyle event on Monday, jumping up from his silver-medal showing at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.

Regina’s Mark McMorris won bronze, matching his result from the past two Olympics. China’s Su Yiming took silver.

The 27-year-old Parrot beat cancer after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in late 2018. That earned him the Laureus World Comeback of the Year Award in 2021.

Canada now has four medals — one gold, one silver, two bronze — at the Beijing Games.
