Hoosier Freestyle Skier Nick Goepper Wins Silver In Pyongchang

Hoosier Freestyle Skier Nick Goepper Wins Silver In Pyongchang

Kenworthy won silver in Sochi.

The Norwegian, who always wears the same lucky underwear during ski finals, had a terrific day on the slopes, topping a strong field to take home an unexpected men's ski slopestyle gold medal.

Norway's Oystein Braaten took gold with a first-run score of 95.00.

Beaulieu-Marchand, cheered on by fearless shirtless supporters with his initials on their chests, recorded a score of 92.40 on his second run. It's something I wanted at the last Olympics, was to share a kiss with my boyfriend at the bottom and it's something I was too scared to do for myself.

The win by Goepper is not only important in his representation of the United States, but it also makes him the first person in history to hold two medals in the slopestyle event of the Winter Olympics, since he was able to snag a Bronze Medal back in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia at the age of 19.

Rumors about ending federal funding have circulated for some time, and The Washington Post reported on the plansover the weekend. But he's said he not convinced the industry could bear the financial burden of maintaining the space station by the mid-2020s.

Parents Linda and Chris Goepper made the trip to South Korea to support their son. Let us know here! It's very different from last time.

It has been a whirlwind of a week for Kenworthy, who broke his thumb in training earlier in the week and had to have several milliliters of blood drained from his hip - injuries he detailed to his growing number of followers on social media.

HollywoodLifers, did you get a chance to watch Nick at the Olympics? But there was something about Nick and skiing, his parents said, especially once he turned 16.

"I knew that the calibre of my third run would put me in the top three".

"He's jumped off so many things and he's spun around so many things that I really, I know that it's a possibility, but that's not what I think about".
