Canada’s Olympic Snowboard Team
Snowboarding is a relatively new Olympic sport, having made its debut at the 1998 Winter Olympics. From the very start, Canada’s athletes made their names, and snowboards, well-known.
Ross Rebagliati is perhaps Canada’s most famous snowboard medallist, capturing the nation’s first snowboarding medal at the 1998 Nagano Winter Games. Rebagliati won the giant slalom event and became the first to ever win Olympic snowboard event.
In total, Canada has won five Olympic snowboard medals in three Winter Games. This result could be in danger as Canada’s 2014 Sochi team is expected to win up to five medals and rule on their snowboards.
