Laurie Blouin won silver on Monday morning at the Phoenix Snow Park, giving Canada its first Olympic medal in women’s slopestyle snowboard.
This is Canada’s first Olympic medal in a women’s snowboard event other than snowboard cross.
Blouin, who is known for pushing the difficulty in women’s slopestyle, stunned the snowboard world when she won gold at the 2017 World Championships. She was able to make her Olympic debut despite taking a hard crash on training in PyeongChang on February 9.
More to come.
