Mark McMorris  

Winner of Canada's First Medal at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

Less than two weeks before the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Mark McMorris crashed at the X Games, breaking a rib. The two-time Winter X Slopestyle champion came back from his injury to win Canada's first medal at the Sochi Games, embodying his personal mantra: work hard, never give up, and above all, have fun.

Regina's Mark McMorris is one of the best snowboarders in the world. Coming back from injury at the 2014 X Games (where he still won a silver medal in Slopestyle), he won the Olympic Bronze Medal in Slopestyle at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games—the first time the Olympic Games has offered this event. "It's history and it was such a great day for snowboarding," McMorris said. "It's such a great day for slopestyle. It's really cool." He won gold in Big Air and Slopestyle at Winter X 2012 and gold in Slopestyle at Winter X 2013 with the highest score ever awarded (98.0). He is the first to win double-gold at Winter X since Shaun White did it in 2009. Their growing rivalry has challenged the snowboard supremacy of the once untouchable red-headed superstar.
