Canada's Brady Leman won the gold medal in the men's ski cross event on Wednesday during the Winter Olympics here.

He was in the big final with Toronto's Kevin Drury, who finished fourth after crashing early in the race.

Sergey Ridzik, representing the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, was third.

After its launch from Sriharikota, it will take one or two months time for the orbiter to reach moon's orbit, the ISRO chief said. The Isro chairman said, "We have chosen the landing site near the south pole as it has big rocks that are billions of years old".

Leman meanwhile had the eighth fastest time in seeding, placed second in heat two of the elimination round behind Bischofberger, ahead of Bischofberger to win the first heat of the quarterfinals and then beat Bischofberger again in the semi-finals.

"I broke my leg the day before competition in Vancouver and then just missing the podium in Sochi was kind of bittersweet".

The 31-year-old held off the challenge of Switzerland's Marc Bischofberger to record his first Olympic podium finish.

Ridzik and Drury's crash was not the only accident during the men's ski cross in Pyeongchang.
