Comeback of the Season: Mark McMorris Repeats Gold at Burton Open

On Saturday, Mark McMorris cemented his name in snowboarding lore by winning gold at the 2018 Burton U.S. Open. His impeccable slopestyle run—in which he threw down a hefty 1260/1440/1440 combo—earned McMorris a repeat championship title shortly after winning a bronze at the Pyeongchang winter olympics. However, it’s not just his skill or repeated success at the U.S. Open (this is his fourth title in the past six years to be exact) that make McMorris a stand out athlete. This guy is tenacious as hell.

Roughly a year ago, the Canadian suffered life-threatening crash in the backcountry. The list of horrific injuries—collapsed lung, 17 broken bones, and ruptured spleen—could have easily ended his career, if not his life. Instead, McMorris rose above the adversity and his successful return to the competition only adds to his well-earned laurels.

“With everything I’ve been through, today makes it worthwhile, 100 percent,” the snowboarder said in an interview following his run. “This is my life and this is what makes me most happy”.
