  • Derek Heidt - Snowboarding



     Derek Heidt of Whistler, B.C., one of four Canadian men to compete in the half-pipe at the Olympics is certain his event will make a big impression at the Olympic Games. Already the Canadian Snowboard Federation estimates one million Canadians snowboard recreationally but few of those have flown around a snowchute and soared three-metres in the air attempting flips and twists. "For the a lot of people, it'll be the first time they'll see halfpipe (at the Olympics)," said Heidt, a 22-year-old Calgary native. "They're going to see a lot of tricks they don't know the names for but hopefully when it's done they will."
