So, the first-ever Youth Olympic Games are about to start in Innsbruck, Austria, and the ski halfpipe competition is this weekend. (There's a slopestyle for the snowboarders but not for the skiers.) I suppose it will be the first "Olympic" ski halfpipe competition to go down in the history books.
Age limit is 14-18 yrs old. There are a few names I recognize on the competitors' list (Beau-James Wells, Kai Mahler, Katie Summerhayes, and my homegirl LISA GRAM representing Austria!), and a lot I don't recognize.
USA is represented by Aaron Blunck and Jeanee Crane-Mauzy
CANADA is represented by Aaron Mackay Shannon Gunning
Rooting for the good ol' USA even though I've never heard of our skiers. Hope you guys rip it up!
