As you may have read in our previous post... or if you havent had your head in the sand for the last few weeks... you would of heard that Scotty James, at 16, competed at his first Olympic Games on Wednesday the 17th. Scotty came 21st in the Halfpipe event, which is a pretty impressive result, only four places from making semi-finals. So on behald of the rest of the Comrades I would just like to take this opportunity to congratulate Scotty - we're real proud of you buddy.
You also would have heard of Torah Bright (Scotty's training partner / defacto big sister) winning herself the gold medal in the womens event. This medal was well deserved and the first ever medal won for snowboarding in Australia. Torah has done us.. and all of Australia proud.
On this note a big pat on the bag is due for Ben Bright who coached both Torah and Scotty.
Also a big well done to Holly Crawford and Ben Mates who cam 8th and 17th respectivelly.
