How Australia celebrated Scotty's bronze

14 February 2018

PYEONGCHANG 2018: Triple Olympian Scotty James not only won his first Olympic medal on Wednesday in the men's Snowboard Halfpipe, but the second for Australia at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games. 

The 23-year-old said that he was "really grateful" to be able to deliver his bronze medal winning performance for Australia and from what we've seen so far, his compatriots couldn't be prouder.
