Snowboarders: Quotes From the 2010 Olympic Winter Games


Brad Martin:

“It was unreal it was super fun to be a part of it, and walk in and hear the crowd roar as soon as you walked in. … It was more than what I expected I knew we’d get a good roar but this was fantastic.”


Michael Robertson, silver medallist in snowboard cross:

“The start is definitely key, and the finish. I had the start, but I didn’t have the finish today. I just missed the landing on one of the jumps a little bit and (Wescott) just nailed everything perfectly.”


Maëlle Ricker, gold medallist in snowboard cross:

“I’m so overwhelmed, I can’t believe it. I can’t say that I could see the crowd, I was just thinking ‘stay on your feet, absorb it and cross the line.”


Mercedes Nicoll, after 6th-place finish in halfpipe:

“I just had the best week of riding I’ve had in my whole life. I think I’ve been working on my amplitude, and I just learned a new trick a couple of days ago.”


Jasey-Jay Anderson, who said he was shocked at his gold medal victory:

“I had so much (time) to make up and in these conditions it’s pretty much impossible.”
