Members Statement – Warrandyte snowboarder Scotty James wins 10 golds

I am very pleased to extend my congratulations to Scotty James, a young Warrandyte snowboarder who has just completed an incredible feat of 10 consecutive wi…

At the end of last month, while his family was battling scorching days and golf ball-sized hailstones, Scotty won the World Cup half-pipe competition in Switzerland and then went on to his 10th consecutive win in a major competition by taking the prize at the X Games in Colorado.

Scotty is a three-time Winter Olympian and attended his first winter Olympics at just 15 years of age, making him Australia’s youngest male Olympian in 50 years and the youngest male competitor at the 2010 Vancouver games. He won the bronze medal in the men’s half-pipe competition at the 2018 Winter Olympics, and given his current form we will be watching closely for more gold at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
