Robby Burns traveled from Mount Shasta to Beijing, China this week to fulfill his lifelong dream competing in the Winter Olympics. Now, it’s time to watch and cheer him on from Northern California.
Competing in the parallel giant slalom, Burns will be competing on Monday, February 7 local time. The qualifying runs begin at 6:40 pm Pacific and the finals will broadcast at 10:40 pm Pacific. It’s unknown how much of the competition will be broadcast on NBC, but you can be sure to see the event on Peacock premium by searching “PGS” qualifications and finals.
Burns has been sharing his journey on social media, showing photos of him on the mountain and sharing video of him walking through the opening ceremonies. Due to Covid, fans are mostly restricted from the events.
Growing up in Mt. Shasta, Robby has spent the past 5 years competing around the world as a professional alpine snowboard racer. Over the past three years, he has competed 19 World Cup racing competitions, with his best ranking coming in at 30th in the world.
Good luck to Robby on his journey to the Olympics! Hereâ€™s our clip of our interview with Robby on the Talking NorCal podcast:
