Matt Graham has won Australia's first medal at the Winter Olympics, taking silver in the men's moguls at Phoenix Snow Park.

Graham, from Gosford in New South Wales, produced his best in the final round to lead until the second-last competitor before settling for silver.

The Australian flew down the course, producing a back flip full twist on his opening jump, then navigated the turns of the middle of the course safely and quickly before landing a D spin 10 off his bottom jump and completing a brilliant run, scoring 82.57 points.

James Matheson went first in the opening round of the final, scoring a 75.98. He was still in with a shot until the final competitors' runs knocked him out of the final 12.

Kingsbury was the hottest of favourites for the gold medal, but he surprised by only having the fourth-biggest score in round one.

Graham went for it from his first run, putting on speed and getting some big air on his bottom jump, the 23-year-old finished in a fast 24.89 seconds, and his score of 81.39 immediately qualified him for the next round with eight men still to go.

Sochi bronze medallist Aleksandr Smyshliaev (Olympic athletes from Russia) was a shock absentee from the final 12 after a poor opening run.

Then the second round turned into chaos as a series of competitors either did poorly or failed to finish — including world champion Ikuma Horishima of Japan and his teammate Sho Endo who both crashed out.

Kingsbury's second run was far from perfect, and his 82.19 was the second top score from round two.

Earlier, Matheson and Rohan Chapman-Davies had competed in the second qualification on Monday evening for the right to join Graham in the final.

Chapman-Davies missed out, finishing 12th, but the Argentinian-born Matheson produced a second run of 74.61 points, to advance by just 0.14 points over Sweden's Walter Wallberg.

Another Australian, Brodie Summers, who missed the opening qualification after injuring his knee in practice, did not take part in the second qualification session, and his Winter Olympics are over.
