kev-hillKevin Hill has wanted to compete at the Olympic Games, no matter what sport, since the first time he saw them on television. He came up just short of making that dream come true at Vancouver 2010, when he came from almost out of nowhere to just miss qualifying for the Canadian team. Four years later he was the top Canadian in men’s snowboard cross at Sochi 2014, finishing second in the Small Final for eighth place overall. That came just a couple of weeks after he just missed the podium with a fourth place finish at the Winter X Games in Aspen.

Hill had made his World Cup debut in February 2009 at the official Vancouver 2010 test event at Cypress Mountain. He had the best season of his career in 2010-11 when he finished ninth in the overall World Cup standings for snowboard cross thanks to four top-10 finishes. That included a near-podium fourth place in February 2011, just a couple of weeks after he won silver at the Winter X Games in Aspen.
