Not just American chauvinism, but these dudes are amazing athletes and now Olympic medalists . . .
JOSS CHRISTENSEN, GUS KENWORTHY, NICK GOEPPER
"It was a U.S. podium sweep at the historic debut of men’s slopestyle skiing in the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games Thursday, when Joss Christensen took the first-ever gold medal with Gus Kenworthy earning silver and Nick Goepper bronze."
Slopestyle skiing is a competition in a terrain park where competitors all ski over the same jumps and rails. Each competitor attempts his best rail skiing style and most extravagant aerial maneuvers. Slopestyle tests a skier's ability to handle a variety of terrain by executing freestyle maneuvers down a course. Each course is filled with features including rails, jibs, hips and a variety of jumps allowing riders to combine big air and technical tricks into one run. Competitors are scored in an overall impression judging format on amplitude, execution, difficulty of line, landing and use of the course.
And for all the other champions of all the other nations . . .
