Redmond "Red" Gerard (born June 29, 2000) is an American snowboarder and a 2018 Winter Olympics gold medalist of the 2018 United States Olympic team. Gerard was born and raised in Ohio, but lives in Silverthorne, Colorado where he has his own miniature snowboarding park in his backyard with a rope tow. Gerard competed in the slopestyle and big air events for the United States at the 2018 Winter Olympics. In slopestyle, Gerard won the gold medal for his performance. This performance itself was rather famous for the events surrounding Gerard; he had overslept in his hotel room after partying late and binge-watching "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" on Netflix, lost his jacket, was forced to borrow his roommate's jacket, and accidentally used profanity on live TV after his win. He was the youngest winter Olympian to win a gold since 1928. He became the first Winter Olympics medalist born in the 2000s. Gerard was also the first American gold medalist in the 2018 Winter Olympics, and the youngest American to medal in a snowboarding event at the Olympics. The 2018 PyeongChang Olympic winter games is his first time competing in the Olympics. Sport Illustrated predicted Gerard would win the gold medal in their Feb. 6, 2018 issue. In 2017 he placed 1st overall in Slopestyle in the FIS Snowboard World Cup Standings. In 2019, Gerard won the overall Toyota Grand Prix in Mammoth, CA.
