After freeskier Tanner Hall severely injured both his knees, doctors told him he might never compete again. Hall set out to prove them wrong: In January, he returned to his first X Games in three years. The Olympics, he says, are a goal of his. "I'm not saying I'm going to the Olympics and I'm going to win everything," Hall says. "It's a goal of mine to get there and have as much fun as possible, but if I don't get there, I don't care."
