Zoe Gillings

Checking out the Winter Olympics last night and loving the BoarderX event that debuted at the Turin games 4 years ago. Basically 4 snowboarders race down Cypress Mountain (cousin of Cypress Hill) at break neck speeds taking on ramps, harsh turns and massive jumps. Makes for some spectacular TV. Brit girl Zoe Gillings who is tipped for big tings and who competes today is hoping for a medal. Check her out.

Just how insane these sick individuals are is illustrated nicely by American Nate Holland who last year ruptured an artery taking part in a Boarder Cross comp which paralysed him. His answer. Learn to walk again. Learn to board again. Compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Check out the sickness here.
