France’s Pierre Vaultier won the gold medal in the men’s snowboard cross competition at the Sochi Olympics in Russia on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old came into the competition, which was delayed due to heavy fog, as the sixth-ranked boarder in the world.

Racing through the rain, Vaultier edged out Russia’s Nikolay Olyunin for the gold, while Alex Deibold won bronze for the United States.
