Multi-talented Trevor Jacob has an impressive resume. He’s popular on the hit series "Nitro Circus," starring action sports star, Travis Pastrana, he’s been invited to the Dew Tour for halfpipe, and is a National Snowboard cross Champion. At the end of the 2012 season, Jacob decided to stop competing in halfpipe and slopestyle and make snowboard cross his main focus. "I had more fun than ever imaginable," Jacob said of the transition. Jacob’s raw talent oozes in anything he does, but it's looking like snowboarding is where he is focusing his energy right now. Since switching over to boarder cross, Jacob had one first-place finish heading into the Olympic qualifying season. Needing a top four finish in any of the contests, Jacob reached the top of the podium in the final qualifying event in Andorra in January. This victory sealed his fate for competing in Sochi.

Things To Know:
1. Like many of his teammates, Jacob got his start young. He remembers, “My parents were snowboarding, trying to teach my brother and I how to ski. I was two and a half and got out of control down the hill and ran straight into a lift pole on skis. After that, they let my brother and I snowboard.”
2. When he's not on snow, Jacob is filming for GKC Videos, jumping out of planes.
