New Zealand's Carlos Garcia Knight has finished as the top qualifier for the men's snowboarding Big Air competition at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.
Garcia Knight scored 97.50 points on his second run in the second two heats.
The big air event is making its Olympic debut in Pyeongchang and sees snowboarders hurtle down a ramp standing at 49 metres with a maximum slope angle of 40 degrees and perform spins and tricks to impress the judges.
Garcia-Knight told SKY TVfinishing top qualifier was "surreal'.
Describing his second and top scoring run Garcia-Knight said it was the best he could possibly have done.
"I dropped in switch, so backwards, and did a switchback 1620 - that's four and a half spins. It's quite unique, not many people do that 'cos it's teh harder way of spinning.
"It was also one of the top amount of spins so it had a lot going on there. The first run I put my hands down and it was a bit messy and then the second run we just cleaned it up and did it the best I could.
"I just felt I had nothing to lose really because I have done really well at these Olympics."
He finished fifth in the slopestyle final.
The Big Air final is on Saturday.
