Snowboarder Scotty James Reveals 40 Things You Didn't Know About Him
The following film was produced in partnership with TAG Heuer
Heart in your mouth, wind in your hair, gravity a forgotten concept: have you ever wondered what it’s like to stare down an Olympic Halfpipe from 12 feet up in the air?
To get inside the mind of someone who lives for these moments, check out this video we made with Olympic snowboarding champion Scotty James. Double World Snowboard Halfpipe champion and current FIS Crystal Globe winner, to say Scotty James is a sensation would be an understatement.
From the best place to get coffee in the world, to his favourite moment in the Olympics (and ways to deal with pressure), we run through a gamut of questions with arguably ‘the most popular Australian sports star in America’.
Now based in Colorado, USA, but still calling Melbourne home, James has proven the hype surrounding him at 15-years-old (when he was the youngest male of all competing nations at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics), was warranted.
What’s the first thing he recommends his friends visiting Melbourne do? The strangest thing he’s ever eaten on his travels? How he trains when there’s no snow? Who his snowboarding heroes are? Oh and the best compliment he’s ever received—which he wasn’t actually sure in the end was a compliment.
