The Winter Youth Olympic Games Lausanne 2020 wrapped up with five Team USA members earning six medals. Team USA was led by U.S. Freeski Pro Team member and Maine Mountain Series freeskier Kiernan Fagan who backed up a gold medal in slopestyle with a silver medal in big air. 

"It definitely was an awesome day," said Kiernan. "I'm really stoked to back up my slopestyle gold with another medal in big air! I was super hyped to throw down one of my biggest tricks (triple cork 1440 mute). The energy was really high today and it was amazing to see everyone send it."

U.S. Freeski Rookie Team and New Hampshire Series freeskier Hunter Henderson, finished behind Kiernan in slopestyle taking home a bronze medal. Sharing the podium was a special moment for both Kiernan and Hunter, who have been skiing together and pushing each other since childhood throughout USASA New England regional series events.

The halfpipe proved to be another site of success for Team USA freeskiers with U.S. Freeski Rookie Team and Aspen Snowmass Series freeskier Hanna Faulhaber earning bronze and Rocky Mountain Series athlete Hunter Cary taking home silver.

“I’m at a loss for words,” said Dusty. “It’s been such a crazy experience since I arrived in Lausanne and I’m super stoked to be representing Team USA. I’m super grateful to have this once in a lifetime experience competing out here and hyped to walk away with the gold. I honestly couldn’t ask for more.”
Rocky Mountain Series’ rider Jack Coyne had a solid top-ten finish landing in eighth place. 
On the women’s side, U.S. Snowboard Rookie Team member Ty Schnorrbusch led Team USA with a sixth-place finish in slopestyle followed by teammate and Midwest Best Series alumna Courtney Rummel in seventh. 
In halfpipe, Unbound Series halfpipe star, Tessa Maud finished just shy of the podium in fourth place. Coyne would also finish just outside podium contention in fifth-place. Coyne put up solid results in both slopestyle and halfpipe.
