Scotty James keen for the run home after historic win at Pyeongcheng

Olympic bronze medallist Scotty James says he’s most looking forward to heading back to his hometown of Warrandyte to celebrate his historic win.

And a well-earned holiday after a chaotic 12 months in the lead-up to the Games in Pyeongchang.

The 23-year-old spoke to Neil Mitchell about what’s next, after taking home the bronze in the halfpipe after a thrilling contest with Japan’s Ayumu Hirano and champion Shaun White.

He says he’s got a way to go before he reaches the same heights as White, but he’s got a lot more to give.

“I got some work to do on my medal tally and hopefully that comes along with all of those medals,” he said.
