BRENDAN DAVIS

SNOWBOARDER

By MIKE AYLWARD

Brendan Davis - SnowboarderBrendan Davis delivered an outstanding performance to win a gold medal for Canada in the men's halfpipe snowboarding competition at the 2005 Winter Universiade in Innsbruck, Austria, last January.
 
The third-year Honours Bachelor of Outdoor Education/Geography student won the snowboarding event with a near flawless performance. "It wasn't perfect, but it was close," said the twotime Ontario halfpipe champion who finished fourth in the event at the 2004 nationals. "I'm happy to win, it's a great feeling."

The gold medal performance by Brendan Davis is Canada's first in snowboarding at the Winter Universiade. The country's only other medal in the sport was in 1999 when Mitch Baker won silver in the giant slalom.
