Switzerland dominated today's snowboard big air events at the Winter European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) in Sarajevo and East Sarajevo with Nick Puenter winning the boys' title and Bianca Gisler topping the girls' standings.

Adams fell on his first run in the final to sit in ninth position, but his next two runs were among the best recorded and moved him up the leaderboard to earn the bronze.

"I'm super excited to have won [the bronze medal] - it was such a good experience," he said.

"I managed to put down a pretty decent run that got me into third.

"I wasn't expected to win like that - my mum and dad were so excited; my mum even cried a bit.

"It's been wicked that they even came to watch - I can't thank them enough."

In the girls' event, Gisler prevailed with 167 points and was followed in the rankings by compatriot Lena Mueller with 155.75 and then Norway's Stine Espeli Olsen with 118.75.
