Snowboarding very popular at the 2010 Winter Olympics

Posted by Mollie Rehner on February 22, 2010

There has been much excitement on Cypress Mountain within the last week. Americans Shaun White and Seth Wescott both took home gold medals. Both snowboarders defended their championship title set back in Torino in 2006. Shaun White astonished the judges with his difficult tricks, including his gravity-defying Double McTwist 1260.

A proud Torah Bright won Australia’s first gold of the Vancouver games in women’s halfpipe Thursday, ending the long-standing American domination of the sport.
