Winter Olympics: Australia's Matt Graham wins a silver medal in men's moguls in Pyeongchang

Winter Olympics: Australia's Matt Graham wins a silver medal in men's moguls in Pyeongchang



 

Graham, from Gosford in New South Wales, produced his best in the final round to lead until the second-last competitor before settling for silver.

The Australian flew down the course, producing a back flip full twist on his opening jump, then navigated the turns of the middle of the course safely and quickly before landing a D spin 10 off his bottom jump and completing a brilliant run, scoring 82.57 points.


American Casey Andringa failed to pass Graham's score, guaranteeing him a medal. It fell to Canadian Mikael Kingsbury — considered the greatest in men's moguls who had never won an Olympic title — to spoil the Australian party.


The Canadian produced a gold medal run, scoring 86.63. Graham becomes the 13th Australian to win a medal at a Winter Olympics.







Sochi bronze medallist Aleksandr Smyshliaev (Olympic athletes from Russia) was a shock absentee from the final 12 after a poor opening run.

Then the second round turned into chaos as a series of competitors either did poorly or failed to finish — including world champion Ikuma Horishima of Japan and his teammate Sho Endo who both crashed out.

Kingsbury's second run was far from perfect, and his 82.19 was the second top score from round two.




Earlier, Matheson and Rohan Chapman-Davies had competed in the second qualification on Monday evening for the right to join Graham in the final.

Chapman-Davies missed out, finishing 12th, but the Argentinian-born Matheson produced a second run of 74.61 points, to advance by just 0.14 points over Sweden's Walter Wallberg.
