Redmond Gerard is the youngest snowboard Olympic gold medalist in history, winning the slopestyle at the 2018 Games at the age of 17.He also finished an impressive 5th in the debut of big air snowboarding. Gerard began competing in the amateur ranks in 2011 and worked his way up to the pro circuit in 2016.
Gerard began snowboarding at the age of two. As the sixth of seven children, he quickly learned that if he didn’t keep up he’d be left behind. Living in Cleveland didn’t allow for a whole lot of snowboarding, but in the winter of 2008 the family decided on a trial move to Breckenridge. Here seven-year-old Gerard had his chance to sharpen his natural talents on a board.
