The Cooper sustained a slight heel injury during his first jump, looked awkward in his second run and was unable to land properly.
Forced to push, he finished his last jump to the ground, after a heavy fall kept him on the ground for a few minutes. He quickly left the center and did not address the media.
I completely missed my last jump and had a major fall that ended with heel bruising, neck pain, backache and a bloody mouththe 29-year-old skater explained on his Instagram account.
Quebec is walking away without much serious injury and will be able to cheer on his countrymen who will try to replace him on the top of the podium on Tuesday.
The crazy thing is, I love snowboarding and its challenges so much that I was just wondering when I could do those jumps again. In the end, it doesn’t matter how hard you fall, what matters is what brings you back.he added.
Canadians Maxence Parrot, Mark McMorris and Darcy Sharpe were among the 12 finalists.
Despite falling out in his last round, Parrott was outstanding with an overall score of 164.75 in his previous two rounds. He took first place ahead of Japan’s Takeru Otsuka (160), who completed 1800, or five full laps on himself.
My first two jumps landed really well, and I’m very happy with that. I tried to do a bigger jump in my third round to get a better result. I miscalculated a bit in the air and turned around very quickly. I thought I didn’t have enough time and I finally had a lot! I fell. Still I’m very proud of my first two jumps, my goal was to do themMale parrot.
Showing great consistency in his three attempts, McMorris (147.25) finished eighth.
I wish my jumps were cleaner, but I’m happy with my day. It is the goal of qualifying. The competition will start again tomorrow, McMorris said, and he is pleased with the playoff formula with the two best goals. It is the first time this has been done. You should be able to jump from both sides. Applying this rule is a good thing for our sport.
Sharp (142) took 12th place, the latter having reached the final. He waited several minutes at the bottom of the track before he was sure of his place. He could have been overtaken by several competitors on their last jump, but they fell victim to a fall.

There was so much pressure that I had to land my jump after losing the first jumps. You shake a little after that. The stuff required to qualify is scary now, it’s big! I am very happy with the successSaid the young man relieved.
