His older sister captured a Winter X Games medal. So he went out and did, too.
Capturing medals just so happens to be a family affair for the Sharpe siblings.
Canadian freestyle skier Cassie Sharpe earned a bronze in the halfpipe on Thursday. Snowboarder Darcy Sharpe followed that up Saturday with a silver-medal finish in the slopestyle event.
Cassie, 25, is heading to the Winter Olympics in South Korea to represent Team Canada. Darcy, 21, didn't qualify for a snowboarding team that's loaded with talent and includes Mark McMorris, who took bronze in the slopestyle event at Winter X.
Here's a little bit about Cassie: She started skiing when she was 11 and won silver at the world championships in 2015. She's also an avid reader who can usually be found with a book in her hands.
In addition, she's a big card player, along with other assorted board games. Her motto, according to her bio on Team Canada, is "You don't have to be perfect to be amazing."
Her brother took the snowboarding route. He's always been proud of his sister, saying on his Winter X Games page that her win at the event in Oslo in 2016, still brings tears to his eyes.
