Danny Davis is what they call "a snowboarder's snowboarder." He came into the Olympics hot off of an X Games win, bringing unique tricks to the halfpipe like his now-trademark switch method. His final run on Tuesday looked like a contender until slush gremlins in the less-than-stellar Olympic halfpipe grabbed his board as he made his way across the flatbottom, throwing him to the ground, and out of medal contention.
