By that point, two of the favourites had been surprisingly eliminated, which left everyone still in it with a shot at an unexpected medal.

He still led as Jia took to the hill on the last jump of the final.

While Rochon was in great shape in the air, he couldn't manage to land the hard jump cleanly, which cost him points.

"But because I did my best I have to be satisfied with the result", he added.

Jia was the last man to jump, and he clearly thought his effort was enough for gold, but the judges disagreed and dealt him silver by a sliver, a decision the Sochi bronze man clearly disagreed with in the moment. "The other competitors were also very strong".

Olympic Athlete from Russia's (OAR) Ilia Burov secured the bronze medal with 122.17 points.

Another Russian athlete Pavel Krotov was within a footstep from getting a medal, as he finished up in fourth place (103.17).

The Belarusian gold medallist from Sochi, Anton Kusnir, failed to progress from qualification, while Australia's David Morris, the silver medallist from four years ago, went out in the first round of the final.
