Canada's Toutant wins inaugural big air gold; USA's Mack takes silver

NBC Olympics.com - A Canadian has claimed the gold medal in men's snowboard big air, but not the one most people expected.

Sebastien Toutant won the first-ever Olympic title for men's big air, while compatriots Max Parrot and Mark McMorris - the pre-event favorites - both had multiple falls that took them out of medal contention.

U.S. snowboarder Kyle Mack used stylish and creative grabs on his tricks to end up with a silver medal, and Great Britain's Billy Morgan took bronze.

Results

Gold: Sebastien Toutant (CAN), 174.25
