With immense talent and a healthy dose of charisma, Canadian Mark McMorris has been one of snowboarding's leading men since taking gold in X Games Slopestyle and Big Air in 2012. At X Games Aspen 2014, he slammed his torso into a rail and broke a rib during his final Slopestyle run. He still earned silver. He recovered just enough -- and just in time -- for the Winter Olympics, where he landed what he called a "dream run" but settled for bronze. But life is good. At 21, McMorris has seven X Games medals, snowboards for money, dates pro surfer Coco Ho and recently bought a SoCal home that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
- McMorris owns seven X Games medals: three gold and four silver. He has X Games Aspen 2012 double gold in Slopestyle and Big Air and was the first snowboarder to earn two gold at the same X Games since Shaun White in 2009. He also landed the first triple cork in competition history.
