The 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver are the second foray into the Olympics for both snowboard cross and Wescott. The two went hand in hand, much as they did in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.
After struggling to finish seventeenth in qualifying, Wescott put everything together to come from behind and defend the gold medal he won in Torino. Mike Robertson of Canada won silver, while Tony Ramoin of France took the bronze. http://www.vancouver2010.com/olympic-snowboard/schedule-and-results/mens-snowboard-cross-finals_sbm490100gS.html10
