Canada's Brady Leman wins gold in Olympic ski cross

"Right now we are the best nation in the world in ski cross and have been for a couple of years", Leman said after claiming Canada's third gold medal from a possible five in ski cross events at the Olympics.

Canada's Brady Leman has earned his Olympic redemption.

The drama came behind the leading pair as Canadian Kevin Drury and Sergey Ridzik of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation team crashed early on in another demonstration of the chaotic nature of the ski cross discipline.

Leman, who finished in fourth place at the last Winter Olympics, came in first place this time around in the four-man final at Phoenix Park.

"I broke my leg the day before competition in Vancouver and then just missing the podium in Sochi was kind of bittersweet".

"So it's a tough one to swallow, but I've had such a great experience regardless of results at all my Games".

Ridzik and Drury's crash was not the only accident during the men's ski cross in Pyeongchang. The 37-year-old previously took gold in the women's 4x5-kilometer relay, silver in the 15-kilometer skiathlon and bronze in the 10-kilometer freestyle at Pyeongchang. "I actually aimed for the gold but I'm happy with the bronze because I haven't been on the podium before".

Canada's Christopher Del Bosco suffered a broken pelvis after his sickening crash during his heat.
