Hometown: Beijing, China
Olympic Outlook: Yiwei is China’s hope for an Olympic medal as another rider who goes absolutely massive. He took second at the Arctic Challenge with his line of three back-to-back double corks, but it’s really the height of all of his tricks that make him stand out from the pack.
Potential Downfall: No doubt Yiwei’s got a solid run but it’s not the most progressive. Other riders are mixing things up more and have a bigger set of spins.
