WATCH LIVE: Men’s slopestyle gets under way, features McMorris and Parrot

0 Comments

With Shaun White out of the first-ever snowboard slopestyle Olympic event, much of the focus shifts to contenders such as Mark McMorris and Max Parrot.

(Granted, many believed that the two Canadian snowboarders were the favorites going in, anyway.)

NBCOlympics.com provides a tale of the tape for the two slopestyle stars, as you can peruse here. It would make a strong accompaniment for the qualifying runs, which will live stream here beginning at 1 a.m. ET.

For some more information on McMorris, click here. It’s noteworthy that he suffered a rib injury before the Olympics, although he insists that he’s good to go.

Parrot made some candid comments about White’s decision to withdraw. Follow this link to read more about Parrot.

Again, the live stream is under way here.
