Winter Olympics 2018: Kyle Mack wins silver for Team USA in men's in big air

Toutant landed jumps of 84.75 and 89.50 in the first two rounds at PyeongChang 2018 to put pressure on the rest of the field under the best-two-of-three-jumps format.

In the final, the scores from each competitor's two best runs were added together to get the final results.

Two riders who had the secrets to conceivably thump Toutant out of that best spot were his partners Parrot and McMorris, who have joined to win the last five X Games huge air rivalries.

"Today I knew I had the tricks and I knew I could've done well, I'm just so happy it's gone my way", said Toutant.

American Kyle Mack, cheered on by U.S. President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka, took the silver with 168.75 points, while Britain's Billy Morgan won the bronze with 168.00.
