“Bobby Brown exemplifies the true grit of a world-class Olympic athlete and connects with our target

Bobby Brown has dominated the sport of freeskiing since 2010. At the age of 18, he won back-to-back gold medals at a single Winter X Games by performing two never-before-seen tricks in Big Air. He then went on to win four additional X Games medals, finish ninth in the 2014 Winter Olympics first ever slopestyle skiing event and receive a nomination for Male Action Sports Athlete of the Year at the ESPYs.
