Kyle Mack did not waste any time in the men's snowboarding big air finals on day 15 of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. Landing two back-to-back runs scoring over 80 points, 82.00 the first run and 86.75 the second, Mack swooped into second place with one run to spare. Missing the landing of his final run didn't affect Mack, who had already locked in a podium position. Possibly his biggest fan, teammate Red Gerard was among the first to congratulate the silver medalist on his big air debut.
