Canada's Eliot Grondin takes silver after snowboard cross photo finish


Eliot Grondin has earned Canada's 10th medal of Bejing 2022 with a silver in snowboard cross.

The 20-year-old Grondin just missed out on the gold medal, losing a photo finish to Alessandro Haemmerle of Austria. Italy's Omar Visintin captured the bronze medal.

It was the second medal in as many days for Canada in snowboard cross after Meryeta O'Dine claimed bronze in the women's event Wednesday. It also marks a strong showing by Canadian snowboarders in general, as they have now won four medals in Beijing including Max Parrot's gold and Mark McMorris' silver in slopestyle.

Grondin's medal came just about a half-hour after Jack Crawford won Canada's ninth medal of the Games and the first-ever for the country in Alpine combined.
