The U.S. has four snowboarders competing in the event, with Nate Holland standing out among a group that also includes Nick Baumgartner, Trevor Jacob and Alex Deibold. The notable exclusion, of course, is 2010 gold medalist Seth Wescott.
There should be some solid competition from overseas, particularly Australia’s Alex Pullin and Austria’s Markus Schairer.
Ryan Lochte will be summoned to attend a criminal hearing in Brazil regarding his Rio de Janeiro gas station incident from Aug. 14, according to NBC News.
“A formal summons is expected to be sent to the U.S. asking for help in bringing Lochte to Brazil. If Lochte does not show up, the process, we’re told, will continue, where he could be charged by the public prosecutor and likely convicted in Brazil,” was reported on MSNBC on Thursday.
Lochte has said he “over-exaggerated” his original story that a gun was pointed at his head during a robbery at a gas station.
Lochte’s full interview with Matt Lauer that aired during NBC’s Olympic coverage last weekend is here.

Polish discus thrower Piotr Malachowski sold the silver medal he won at the Rio Olympics to raise funds for a 3-year-old boy fighting eye cancer.
In an online auction, Polish billionaire siblings Dominika and Sebastian Kulczyk bid an amount large enough to cover 3-year-old Olek Szymanski‘s treatment for retinoblastoma in New York, according to Malachowski’s Facebook page and media reports.
Malachowski’s gesture is reminiscent of Polish swimmer Otylia Jędrzejczak, who sold her gold medal from the 2004 Athens Olympics to raise money to help children with leukemia.
