Gerard Wins America's First Gold Medal


America has its first gold medal at  the Winter Olympics.  Seventeen-year-old Red Gerard won gold in the  men's snowboard slopestyle on Sunday.  Gerard struggled on his first two  runs, but made the last one count to secure the first gold of the  Olympics for Team USA and the first medal overall.  Canada's Max Parrot  and Mark McMorris took home sliver and bronze respectively.  Gerard can  go for two golds when he competes in the Big Air contest on February  24th.
