It’s a long road to the Olympics so one can only assume most Olympians have inspiring journeys and a few stories to tell. Here are some interesting facts about our favorite Canadian skateboard athletes.
1- Andy Anderson’s priority is not winning.
Not that he will not try to win but Andy has a stronger desire to contribute to skateboarding than to beat anyone else. He recently said in an interview with a CBC journalist that it is up to the judges to decide who will win according to very precise criteria. One of the criteria is progression over perfection so a new trick should obtain a better score than a trick that has been seen before despite a perfect form. As we have seen Andy during his qualification runs he was so creative and despite him not winning a medal, it is certain that he inspired a ton of skaters and made many new fans.
