The Quebec native is just the second Canadian male to win an Olympic medal in snowboarding. Mike Robertson won home silver at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Grondin stepped onto the podium a day after fellow Canadian Meryeta O’Dine won bronze in the women’s event. The BC natives won bronze while Lindsey Jacobellis of the United States won gold and Chloé Trespeuch of France won silver.

Keegan Messing finished 11th in the men’s singles figure skating event just three days after he arrived in China. The 30-year-old arrived in Beijing a week late after a positive COVID-19 test left him stranded in Vancouver.

The Canadian champion skated to Phillip Phillips’ “Home” and wore black pants and a red and black flannel shirt for his show to the delight of his Canucks colleagues at home.
