Sadowski Sinnote presented New Zealand with the first Olympic gold

Sadowski Sinnote presented New Zealand with the first Olympic gold

The land of the big white cloud has won the first gold medal at the Winter Olympics in its history.

New Zealand’s Joey Sadowski completed an amazing run in his final attempt at the Secret Garden Slope Style course to deliver gold to the island nation on Sunday.

“The best tour of my life,” he said, as he was born in Australia to an American mother and New Zealand father.

The family moved to Vancouver, New Zealand when she was 6 years old.

New Zealand is also famous for hosting its rugby team, the All Blacks, and the US Cup in rowing. But it also has the closest ski resorts to Sadovsky Synod’s home, making it the best place in the southern hemisphere for skiing and snowboarding.

“I do not think so,” Sadovsky told Sinnote. “Winning New Zealand’s first winter gold will be very rewarding for me.”

Despite the heavy snow and strong winds he hit the curriculum without backing anything up, which was tough for most of the 12 finalists, with two-time defending champion Jamie Anderson finishing ninth.

Sadovsky Sinnote started the last of his three rounds behind American Julia Marino, but saved the last best.

He landed the Double Cork 1080 in his final stage and took half of his board long enough for the judges to appreciate it. At last month’s Winter X Games, she repeated the trick in the opposite direction, as if she were the first woman to do so.

Sadovsky raised his hands after the Chinnote landed, and was greeted by silver medalist Marino at the finish line and Australia’s Ted Cody, who finished the stage.

“Incredible,” Sadovsky said of the Sinnote celebration.

Local favorite

Chinese teenager Xu Yimming revealed a great trick early in her run and was the surprise leader in the men’s slopestyle elimination round.

With Triple Cork, the tactic that most competitors have set aside for the final, Su finished 86.80, knocking out his idol Mark McMorris of Canada and defending champion Red Gerrard as they advanced to the final on Monday.

Su, 17, applauded enthusiastically in front of a small audience at the end of the tour. He won a major air meet in Colorado last December and did not make it into the top five at the World Cup event.

Gerrard finished fifth and McMorris second. The first 12 advanced to the finals.

The descent of the men was postponed

The first event of the alpine ski project, the downhill for men, was postponed due to strong winds blowing on the Yanking Alpine Sky Center’s fast track. The organizers decided to postpone the race as the wind was blowing at 40 mph (64 km / h) which created very dangerous conditions for the competitors.

The match was rescheduled for the same day as the grand slalom, the first women’s tournament since Monday.
