The Norwegian finished tenth in the men's freestyle ski slopestyle event at the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014.

He claimed the Olympic silver at Phoenix Snow Park on Sunday, scoring 93.60 on his final run in men's slopestyle.

The near-flawless opener, capped by massive back-to-back switch double cork 1440s on the final two jumps, gave the 22-year-old his first Olympic medal and broke the United States' grip on the event.

He was ultimately overhauled in the third and final run, however, by the runner-up American Nick Goepper and the bronze-winning Canadian Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, despite another impressive score of 90.00.

Woods said: "Fourth place is minging, it's so devastating".

"I took a really big hit on the first run that really hurt, but I'm pretty sure I laced that run that I was constructing for a good amount of time, under the pressure and I'm proud of that".

Woods' finish was one better than he managed in Sochi four years ago but it will come as no consolation to the Sheffield star who came to the Games as a strong medal contender.

"Just being a part of a final like this was amazing.The level was so high, so numerous guys I have looked up to and inspired me every day to go out and ride". "The only thing you could have told me was that I'd be relatively healthy and proud of myself at the end of this and I would take that".
