Gus Kenworthy ‘happy to walk’ after brutal crash at Winter Olympics

Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy – who switched allegiance from the United States to compete for Great Britain at his last Games in Beijing in honor of his mother – said he was “happy to walk” after a horror accident in the men’s halfpipe final on Saturday.

“Given the conditions, I still had more than I wanted, but after this bad slam, I’m happy to walk and clinch the race and get through it in one piece,” he added. “It’s a good show despite how gnarly it is here.”

Kenworthy finished eighth. New Zealander Nico Porteous won gold while Americans David Wise and Alex Ferreira took second and third place.
