First-time Olympian Gus Kenworthy will be competing in slopestyle and halfpipe in Sochi.  The British-born freeskier passed on competing for Great Britain and chose Team USA, for which it is more difficult to qualify.

Kenworthy is coming off a great Winter X Games showing, where he became the first person to land a triple-cork in the slopestyle event.
