Blame it on the “McRib” if you’d like, but either way, Canadian snowboarded Mark McMorris couldn’t punch his ticket to the slopestyle finals in the qualification round. His loss is the viewing public’s game, as he headlines the slopestyle semifinal, which kicks off at 12:30 a.m. ET.
If you’re wondering about the U.S. connection, three Americans (Chas Guldemond, Sage Kotsenburg and Ryan Stassel) also hope to advance to today’s finals, which are scheduled to begin at 3:45 a.m. ET.
One more name to watch is Peetu Piiroinen. The Finn is hoping to become the first snowboarder to win medals in more than one discipline (since Shaun White’s bid ended with a jammed wrist).
