Vermont’s Alex Deibold won a bronze medal Tuesday in the men’s snowboardcross event at the Olympics.

Deibold, of Manchester Center,
made a strategic pass late in the medals round to take the bronze at the rainy Rosa Khutor venue. He held onto his position until he spotted room in a corner for a pass and made his move.

France's Pierre Vaultier took home the gold medal with Russia's Nikolay Olyunin taking silver.
