The Lawrenceburg native fared better than his teammate Gus Kenworthy, who failed to land any of his three runs and came in last.

Nick Goepper earned a silver medal in men's ski slopestyle at the Winter Olympics at Phoenix Snow Park in Pyeongchang, South Korea on Sunday, February 18.

Meanwhile, it was Braaten's 95.00 which led the way, with the Winter X Games silver medallist the only skier to post a score of over 90 in the opening round.

Battling "mega-whiplash" and a bloody chin from a first run wipeout, James Woods soared to within an agonising 1.4 points of securing an historic fifth Winter Olympics medal for Great Britain in Pyeongchang.

"It has been a dream just to get to the finals, through such heavy qualifying, then landing the best run I have ever done in the first run of the final".

Nick Goepper snagged second place in the men's ski slopestyle - and gave a shout out to Perfect North in the process.

Speaking after the final, Goepper said he changed his initial plan once the high quality of the field became evident.

"Just being a part of a final like this was amazing.The level was so high, so numerous guys I have looked up to and inspired me every day to go out and ride". Oystein Brattan of Norway won the gold medal (95.00) and Canada's Alex Beaulieu-Marchand grabed the bronze medal (92.40).

The event was ultra-competitive from start to finish - eight of the 12 qualifiers for the final scored more than 90 points. He nailed his third and final run with a score of 93.60 to go from ninth to the silver medal.

Japan's lone entrant, 16-year-old Taisei Yamamoto, did not reach the final.
