I started freestyle skiing at the age of 16 and immediately fell in love with the sport. Going to the ski hill with friends and learning new tricks captivated me! My goal is to become the best athlete I can be and inspire the younger skiers to chase their dream. I find a lot of joy in creating content and sharing my story with others. I hope one day to perform in front of millions of people on the biggest stages. Last season, I got my first World Cup starts and I'm looking to represent myself at the Olympics one day!" @BRUCE_OLDHAM

Made the switch from ski racing to freestyle when he was 10… he wanted a sport in which he could properly express himself. Brendan made his World Cup debut in early 2013 with more success in 2018-19 when he earned two World Cup top-five finishes and broke into the top-10 in the overall World Cup halfpipe standings for the first time. In a pandemic-shortened 2020-21 season, he won silver in the only halfpipe World Cup event that season.. Mackay reached the podium in all three halfpipe World Cups in 2021-22, starting with a bronze in Copper Mountain before capturing back-to-back GOLD medals in Calgary to help him finish first in the overall world halfpipe standings. Currently Brendan is competing at the Olympics in Beijing.
Outside of the sport, he is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science with a double major in math and physics… Enjoys rock climbing, playing guitar, photography, hiking, camping, surfing
