Biggest surprises

Snowboard star Ester Ledecka (CZE) not only stunned the alpine skiing world, but also the snowboard community with her surprise gold in super-G.

Further surprises include snowboard cross silver for teen sensation Julia Pereira de Sousa Mabileau, becoming the third French female to medal in this event after Deborah Anthonioz won silver in Vancouver 2010 and Chloe Trespeuch bronze in Sochi 2014.

Regino Hernandez’s bronze medal in snowboard cross marked the third time that Spain has won an Olympic Winter Games medal and the first in snowboard, following Francisco Fernandez Ochoa’s gold in slalom in Sapporo 1972 and his sister Blanca Fernandez Oachoa’s bronze in slalom in Albertville 1992.

Favourite behind the scenes story
