can't wait to see who is the first user saying that China cheated in another judging sport for the gold :raspberry:

Given the anger and controversy Parrot's win over Su in slopestyle caused I really don't see that happening.

I'm kind of annoyed at this controversy.  McMorris laid down the best run of the day, and in the end the medals for countries worked out.  Su missed half the rail section and wasn't clean on his first two jumps.  He landed a massive last jump, but that's like 1/6 of the total score even though it's often the biggest.  Him getting gold would have been a joke given the rest of his run.

I can't believe the snowboard programme is done already.  It feels like it was a bit rushed, especially having both big air finals on the same day.  Good (not great) Games for Canada in snowboard, and lots of exciting competitions from everyone.  Very enjoyable to watch.

Some medal related stats, now that snowboarding becomes the 4th sport to conclude (after luge, skeleton and ski jumping):

  • :AUT and :USA share top spot in the Beijing 2022 medal standing for Snowboarding. This is the first time these is such a tie for the sport, the first tine :AUT leads the medal tally for snowboarding and the 6th time in a row :USA leads the medal tally in snowboarding.
  • :USA extends it's lead atop the all time medal table to nine gold medals more than second place :SUI in terms of golds and 18 medals over second place :CAN in terms of total medals.
  • :SUI, the second best nation all time in snowboarding, wins only one bronze medal.
  • :CAN and :AUT both move ahead of :FRA, who was previously third, in the all time medal table.
  • :CHN, :JPN and :NZL all win their first ever gold medal in the sport.
  • Four continents have now won gold medals in snowboarding. Freestyle skiing and short track are the only other winter sport with that distinction.
  • Snowboarding is also now the only winter sport where more four different continents have two or more countries that have won at least one gold medal.
  • :NOR now has four silver medals, the most silver medals a country has ever won in snowboarding without winning gold.
  • :NOR and :SLO now have five medals, tied all time for most medals won in snowboarding without winning gold with :JPN's previous record.
  • Only one new "NOC" won a medal: :ROC. 25 NOCs have now won medals in snowboarding.

:CAN sucks so much at these Olympics that the two best jumps from the nine jumps from out three finalists in this event still wouldn't beat :CHN Su xD

To be brutally honest. Apart from halfpipe I find mens Snowboarding in general very boring. I guess the progression is to just do the most spins. No real flair or realness.

This is all very interesting because many say snowboarding and freestyle are North American sports, but they're actually the most diverse in terms of medal winners.  Much more diverse than the various nordic events.
