Team USA Sweeps Men’s Slopestyle Skiing, Win 3 Medals

Americans Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper took the podium in men’s slopestyle skiing Thursday, putting on a spectacular show to boost America’s medal count and provide the US team with a much need jolt.

“I am shocked,” Mr. Christensen said. “I am stoked to be up here with my friends. America, we did it.”

The podium sweep was just the 3rd for the USA in Winter Olympic history, joining men’s figure skating in Y 1956 and men’s halfpipe snowboarding in Y 2002.

All 4 US Gold medals in Sochi have come at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, and Thursday’s wins came 15 hrs after Kaitlyn Farrington and Kelly Clark won the Gold and Bronze in women’s halfpipe snowboarding.

“It’s crazy,” Nick Goepper said. “I think it’s going to give the US a lot more confidence now and it’s going to get a lot of people really excited.”

The Americans are fired up. When his score was posted, the roar quickly morphed into chants of “USA! USA!”

“Just competing for the US is so cool,” Mr. Christensen said. “We’re all representing. All our stuff has USA on it. It’s not like a normal team that we’re used to. We can be proud to be on this team. Today was a good showing of our sport. Hopefully world recognizes how much fun we’re having.”
