Hana Beaman, a three-time X Games silver medalist in snowboard slopestyle, hopes to qualify for the 2014 Olympics. She will be 31 then. "I feel like it is an opportunity that's there, and if I didn't at least try, I might be kicking myself down the road," Beaman says. "I've done the competition scene before, and I did really well at it, so that's not very foreign to me."
