New Zealand won the gold medal at the Winter Olympics for the second time in Beijing’s history. After Zoi Sadowski-Synnott celebrated the premiere of the kiwi on downhill ice at the start of the games, Nico Porteous doubled the day in half-pipe skating. He won the world champion and Olympic bronze medal from 2018 ahead of Americans David Wise and Alex Ferreira.

Porteous’s teammates and coaches honored their Olympic champion after competing in the traditional New Zealand method: the hakka.

On the other hand, Swiss Robin Brigitte completely failed in the final in the half-pipe. Al Falizi fell three times in extremely difficult and windy conditions and finished 12th in the competition. (Abu)
