On the latest episode of The Powell Movement's podcast, Mike Powell chats with the most decorated halfpipe skier of all time, David Wise. In addition to being the favourite to win his second Olympic gold medal in tonight's halfpipe finals (which kick off at 6:30 p.m. PST), the incredibly likeable 27-year-old stands out amongst his competitors (both on and off the hill) as a man of faith with a wife and two kids. Listen to Dave discuss the latter, the story behind his unique and heartwarming 10% rule, corporate sponsorships and parting ways with 4FRNT, X Games vs the Olympics, and more.
