Ross Rebagliati was the first-ever gold medalist in Olympic snowboarding.  He was also the first Olympian to have his medal taken away and given back.  Instead of being a blessing, the Olympic Medal ended up being a curse for Ross.  On the podcast, we talk about how the biggest triumph of his life turned into a series of wrong turns--for a guy who should be a household name.  It’s an interesting one with an athlete who was wronged, but he's also an athlete who never really helped himself.
