The Ricker: Canadian Gold Medalist Maelle Ricker-Snowboards

Maelle Ricker, Canadian Olympic Snowboarder is the first female Canadian to win a gold medal on Candian soil.  She’s making the country proud and probably millions of young Canadian girls are going to want a snowboard for Christmas this year. 

In an interview with Faceoff.com Maeller talks about her motivation, “Turin was such a motivator for me,” said Ricker, a West Vancouver, B.C., native who grew up racing on Cypress Mountain.  “It just made me work that much harder and just go for it today.”

Ironically, her gold winning race was on Cypress Mountain.
