BOSTON — Fenway Park turned into a snowboard winter wonderland Thursday night, and the result was an exciting night filled with high-flying tricks off a 140-foot jump.
Julia Marino took home first place in the women’s Big Air at Fenway event, and Max Parrot earned the top honor on the men’s side.
To see how they won and who came in second and third, check out the full results from all three runs below:
Ladies: Julia Marino got out to an early lead in the ladies’ final with a score of 87.25 on a backflip, and she was followed by Jenna Blasman (83.25) and Spencer O’Brien (78.75) in the top three.
Men: Michael Ciccarelli dazzled on the men’s side with an impressive 91.25 on his first run, but top qualifier Max Parrot (87.25) and Charles Guldemond (84.50) were close behind.
Right before the men hit the 140-foot jump, though, word came down that 2014 Sochi Olympics slopestyle gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg suffered an injury earlier in the day and was out of the competition. He tweeted out an update later in the night.
Ladies: The top two scores for each snowboarder will be combined at the end of the event, and Marino was the clear front-runner for gold through two rounds. She followed up her top score in the first run with an 82.75, which gave her a combined total of 162.75.
O’Brien didn’t land her second run cleanly, but she was in second through two jumps with a combined score of 111.50. Blasman also didn’t hit her second jump cleanly, and she was in third with a 109.50.
Men: Parrot dazzled with his second run, and he was rewarded with a 96.25 from the judges. That gave him a combined score of 183.50, which put him in first with one more jump to go. He was followed by Ciccarelli, who followed up his strong first run with an 82.75 and a combined score of 174.00. Rounding out the top three still was Guldemond, who had a combined total of 156.50 after a 72 in Run 2.
Ladies: The first three snowboarders, including O’Brien, crashed on their final runs. So that meant Brooke Voigt could jump up to the podium. And that’s exactly what she did with a 70 on her final jump. Marino went big on her last run and was rewarded with an 82. Blasman appeared to concede first place on her last jump, but the conservative move landed her a score of 69 and second place.
Here are the women’s top three finalists:
First: Julia Marino (169.25)
Second: Jenna Blasman (152.25)
Third: Brooke Voigt (117.75)
Men: Guldemond won the crowd over before his jump by calling his shot from the top of the scaffolding, and he followed through with an 85.50. Ciccarelli couldn’t land his final attempt cleanly, so that mean Parrot wrapped up first place before his final run.
Here are the men’s top three finalists:
First: Max Parrot (183.50)
Second: Michael Ciccarelli (174)
Third: Charles Guldemond (170)
