Hall finished behind Russian skier Aleksei Bugaev who won gold under a neutral flag and France's Arthur Bauchet who grabbed silver.

Nishikawa said following the race they made a decision to implement this unique strategy as a way to keep up a higher speed with McKeever throughout the entirety of the race.

"I now hope Pyeongchang2018 can increase the sales target further with six days of competition still to go". "Both Russ and Graham did such a good job today that I was hurting by the end, so it was thanks to them that we got this done".
