Canada has won its first medal at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Mark McMorris took the bronze in the slopestyle -- a snowboarding event that's making its first appearance at a Winter Games.

McMorris, who is from Regina, is competing at Sochi with a broken rib.

The gold medal was won by Sage Kotsenburg of the United States.

Canadians Max Parrot fifth and Sebastian Toutant was ninth.

This is not the first time Canada has won on the first day of competition.

In 2006 at the Turin Olympics, Jennier Heil won the first-ever medal for Canada in the women's moguls.

She was also the first Canadian woman to win a gold medal in freestyle skiing.
