Our Final Event was the Men's Aerial Finals. This was one of the hotter tickets at the games, if the number of folks with "Need 2 Tickets" signs was any indication. The competition was fast - within one hour, the medals were won. All eyes were on Eric Bergoust, but fell and landed in last place. The Gold went to Czech Ales Valenta, whose record-breaking quad twist was the first ever landed in competition. USA's Joe Pack perfect jump earned him a silver.
