Monday evening Seth Wescott held a media availability to discuss his gold medal-winning performance in Monday afternoon's snowboardcross event. The following are highlights from the session:

On "renting the podium": "It didn't necessarily matter where that podium was positioned in the world. I was coming in here as the only man to ever have won the Olympics snowboardcross gold, and I didn't want anyone else to have it yet, either."

On riding in the second position: "It's almost kind of fun because you can sort of will people to mess up a little bit--if you're really pushing them."

On if he is done competing in the Olympics at age 33: "No not at all. I'm planning on Sochi..I'm coming back for more. That [age] bar hasn't been set yet for action sports. I'm going to be part of the generation that sets that bar." 

   On advice for the women in their event Tuesday: "It's going to be soft for sure. They've got to    stay on their back foot in the turns tomorrow and staying light on the edges. It's a different type of riding in these conditions. Lindsey was riding great in training all week. She's clearly ahead of all the other girls."
