KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Mark McMorris wasn’t going to let a broken rib derail his Olympic plan.

The Canadian snowboarder needed acupuncture, massage therapy and plenty of rehab exercises to get back in form after crashing at the X Games late last month. He knew he would have to fight through the pain and impress the judges to reach the podium in slopestyle’s Olympic debut.

He did just that Saturday, nailing his second run to win bronze and give Canada its first medal of the Sochi Games.
