Torah Bright, 2010 Winter Olympics gold medalist, exists in a category all of her own. After a decade of mastering her snowboarding style, she is one of the few snowboarders (man or woman) who can throw down a switch Mctwist 720 in competition. A snow lover since birth, Torah was skiing at age 2 and by 11 she had broken into the snowboarding scene. Torah joined the Roxy team in 1999 and has gone on to dominate competitions around the world, including the TTR World Tour, Global Open Series, Winter X Games, and of course, a gold medal finish at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Torah splits her time between her home of Salt Lake City, her training ground of New Zealand, and her homeland of Australia. In 2011, she began to focus on backcountry riding and has added big powder jumps, steep lines, and snowmobile rallying to her formidable arsenal.
