The article discusses 1998 Nagano Olympic snowboard gold medalist and Canadian sporting legend, Ross Rebagliati’s quest for 2010 Olympics in Whistler/Vancouver plus his training routine, fundraising efforts, quest to make the team role on tour and recreational interests.

Excerpted from Press Release a Global Comedy Fests:
On February 8, 1998, Ross Rebagliati made Olympic history in Nagano, Japan by winning the first ever gold medal for snowboarding – fans across Canada celebrated! In 2005, Ross was inducted into the Bristish Columbia Sports Hall of Fame – supporters throughout the province cheered. Now it’s 2007 and Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Rebagliati hosts the first annual Baked Sale at the YALE and Vancouverites will laugh their asses off.
The show examines the nectar of counterculture gods – Pot. Stand up, sketch and live music will smolder throughout The Yale on September 20th at, 8PM creating clouds of laughter amid a haze of comedy. Rebagliati will be joined with a stellar line up of comics including Mike MacDonald, Doug Benson, Legendary storyteller Ron Shock, Damonde Tschritter, Wreck beach icon, “Pot Diva” Watermelon and co-creator of “Marijuana-Logues”, Tony Camin.
