BIOGRAPHY:

Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Rebagliati speaks from experience. When he discovered snowboarding, he knew right away the sport was for him. After getting really, really addicted to it, he realized he wanted to snowboard for a living. His rigorous training paid off, and he reached his goal. His problems started after the Olympics when the high of winning wore off: he lost his focus. All over again he had to figure out who he was. Refocused and re-energized, Ross continues to follow his own road in life.
