Max ParrotandYves Mailhot
After being diagnosed with cancer shortly after he won a silver medal in PyeongChang, Max Parrot was determined to recover in time to compete at the X Games two months after a final body scan had determined he was in remission. With the help and support of his conditioning coach, Yves Mailhot (who he’s known since he was 14 years old), Max not only competed in the X Games, but took home his sixth gold medal.
After pre-qualifying for the 2022 Beijing Winter Games, Max is eager to make his return to the Olympics and, hopefully, the podium.
“The biggest win of his life was beating the cancer, so to see him win gold at the X Games after that was such a special moment.”
