Jonny Moseley

Besides a range of sporting interests, such as horse riding, she’s also a keen artist and loves all outdoor activities and adventures.

David Wise 

David Wise has been on the top of the halfpipe podium since early 2011, with a trophy case that includes the inaugural Olympic gold medal in men’s ski halfpipe. Wise, a family-oriented man from Reno, NV, had a consistent road to Sochi, winning two of the five Olympic qualifying events and clenching his team nomination through objective criteria. With his ticket to Sochi in hand, Wise made a quick stop in Aspen, CO before heading to Russia and bagged his third-straight X Games gold medal, the only athlete to accomplish the feat since Tanner Hall’s three-peat from 2006-2008.
