13-year-old Leman is from Calgary, Alberta. After his disappointing finish in Sochi, his first Olympic Games, he was on a mission for redemption. Leman is the first Canadian to medal at this event.

 

Switzerland’s Marc Bischofberger earned silver. Toronto’s Kevin Drury was also in the big final, finishing fourth after a big crash with OAR athlete Sergey Ridzik who managed to recover for the bronze.

In the small final, Canada’s Dave Duncan was fourth, placing him 8th overall.
