On March 23rd in Lev Bushman (SMMU) we screened this amazing documentary! Check out the trailer:
Fifteen years of verite footage show the epic rivalry between half-pipe legends Shaun White and Kevin Pearce, childhood friends who become number one and two in the world leading up to the Vancouver Winter Olympics, pushing one another to ever more dangerous tricks, until Kevin crashes on a Park City half-pipe, barely surviving. As Kevin recovers from his injury, Shaun wins Gold. Now all Kevin wants to do is get on his snowboard again, even though medics and family fear this could kill him.
On Wednesday March 9th at 7pm we will be hosting concussion seminar. The location is SMMU, Green Room 433a.
The event will consist of short talks about concussions by students and light snacks.
