Men’s Big Air Qualifications

Big names miss cut in Men's Big Air Qualification

PyeongChang 2018

Olympic news: Parrot & Knight dominate Big Air

The first Olympic Men’s Big Air event took place this morning with a double heat qualification process, which saw Max Parrot and Carlos Garcia Knight laying down huge tricks to take top place in their rounds. The full results are below.

With only six men from each heat going through to the finals, the quallies were always going to be a hotly-contested affair but there were nonetheless some suprise omissions on the final list of qualifiers. In particular, big names like Staale Sandbech, Rene Rinnekangas, Seppe Smits, Peetu Piiroinen, Jamie Nicholls, Roope Tonteri, Marcus Kleveland and Sebbe de Buck (to name but a few) couldn’t bring it and found themselves missing the final. Then again, that’s a list of seven already – in a qualifying group of just 12 – so it’s probably little wonder we saw a few expected riders missing the cut.

Men’s Pipe Gold winner – and everyone’s favourite king of laid-back – Red Gerrard made the cut in his round coming in 6th place. However, Parrot and – in particular – Garcia Knight would dominate their rounds.

UK rider Billy Morgan stomped his second run for a 90.50 and guaranteed himself a place in the finals. Unfortunately, Jamie Nicholls dropped his first run and could only manage and 81.25 in his second, a good way short of the required 85.00 needed to get into the top 6. Rowan Coultas (again of the UK) looked like he could have done with a third run, improving as he went with scores of 81.00 and 84.50 – just 0.50 short of Gerrard in 6th place qualifying.

The Men’s Big Air Final takes place Saturday 24th February at 10am local.
