Russian freestyler wins bronze in men's ski cross in PyeongChang

Canada's Brady Leman won the gold medal in men's ski cross on Wednesday at Phoenix Snow Park on a crash-filled day.

Drury finished fourth after crashing with Sergey Ridzik, an Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation, early in the race.

The medal was the 12th at the Olympics for the Russian athletes.

Team Canada now has 20 Olympic medals (nine gold medals, five silver medals and six bronze medals) and sit third in the total medal standings. But instead of settling for bronze, Leman tried to make a big move on the jump, and ended up crashing out.

Leman also got redemption in Pyeongchang.

Thankfully Drury recovered from the fall and did eventually cross the finishing line, however, he was given a Did Not Finish classification.

School massacre: Federal Bureau of Investigation didn't follow tip on shooter
The Florida sheriff had this to say after 17 people were murdered at a high school on Wednesday: "There really are no words". That friend's parents, James and Kimberly Snead, spoke about Cruz to the media for the first time on Saturday.

Defending champion Jean-Frédéric Chapuis, who led a French podium sweep at Sochi 2014, failed to progress any further than the quarter-finals.

"This blows the other two Games out of the water", said Leman.

Montreal's Chris Del Bosco crashed in an earlier heat and was taken to hospital where he was conscious and stable.

A spokesperson for the country's ski association Freestyle Canada told The Canadian Press that Del Bosco had suffered a suspected pelvic injury.

The Calgary native came up the ranks as an alpine skier before discovering his passion for ski cross.

In Vancouver in 2010, Leman was named an alternate for Canada's ski cross team but was forced into action when Dave Duncan was hurt in a training run.
