Cai Xuetong is already a snowboarding pioneer in China, but a podium at Beijing 2022 would set her legacy in stone. In 2009, she became the first Chinese snowboarder to win the FIS World Youth Snowboarding Championships, blazing a trail for Chinese shredders.

Fast forward 13 years, and the halfpipe hero is a double world champion, landing 27 podiums at 37 World Cups with 12 wins. With the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games in her back yard this February, Cai is ready to set the snow on fire at her fourth Olympics and claim the biggest prize of all: that elusive Olympic medal.
