OLYMPIC SNOWBOARDER JUSTIN REITER RETIRING
Thank you Justin! Our SG Pro Team rider Justin Reiter is closing the chapter as one of America’s most successful parallel snowboarding athletes: Olympic snowboarder, 10- time national champion and World Cup winner. Justin is retiring as an athlete but plans to continue his passionate engagement with the sport as a coach.
“This was a hard decision as the 2018 Olympic season is finally here,” said Justin. “But in the end, I just no longer felt the same fire in my heart as I used to. To be the best you have to give your best. I could no longer continue to commit all that I am to the sport I love so much.” Justin, who competed in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, wrapped up his career as an athlete with an even 100 World Cup starts, scoring four podium finishes. One of the highlights was a World Cup win under the lights in downtown Moscow in 2015 in front of thousands of spectators and a global television audience. He also won a silver medal in parallel slalom at the 2013 World Championships.
He’ll work alongside his own current coaches Erich Pramsohler and Thedo Remmelink working with Michael Trapp, currently the number one ranked American, NorAm Cup champion Robby Burns and Czech Republic athlete Ester Ledecká, a two-time World Champion.
