For those of you who aren’t familiar with this young upcoming snowboarder, we want to give you a little introduction. Mark is a 20 year old professional Canadian snowboarder who has won several gold, silver, and bronze medals competing. Only about a week before the olympics he broke a rib during X-Games Aspen. He continued to heal and work to be able to compete in Sochi and ended up winning bronze in the slope-style. Burton put up a video of his journey through the difficulties before the olympics and how he didn’t let the pain stop him from pursuing his dream. We have much respect for those who carry through the obstacles of life with their head held high. Keep doing what you do best, Mark! Can’t wait to see you kill it again at the 2015 Aspen X-Games.
