About Red

Red Gerard became the youngest US Snowboarding athlete to win Gold at the Pyeong Chang 2018 Winter Olympics. Gerard first began competing in the amateur ranks in 2011. By 2015 he was scoring podium finishes on the Revolution Tour, the final stage to the elite level competitions. That year he also earned fourth at the Junior World Championships and by 2016 he was on the pro level.

Red’s success has been meshed with his families continued support and he graciously presented his brother Kai (Malachi Gerard) th prestigious coaches award, the “order of Ikkos” medal, selected and presented by each medal-winning Olympic athlete. The Order of Ikkos medal was established prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and inspired by Ikkos – the first recorded Olympic coach in Ancient Greece. In true Red Gerar style, keepin his family close, he chose to acknowledge his brothers efforts toward his success and the two continue to travel the globe together.

Redmond was born in Westlake Ohio and started snowboarding at the age of 2. He moved to Colorado in 2008 and has not slowed down since. His talent for contest, and filming is well ahead of his time.
