New South Wales Institute of Sport snowboarder Alex Pullin cemented his name as one to watch at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games with a historic snowboard cross world championship victory over the weekend. Competing at the FIS Snowboard World Championships in Stoneham, Canada, Pullin became the first male to win consecutive snowboard cross world titles with his stirring ride.
