Bose Presents: Better Never Quits – Joss Christensen

Joss Christensen has Olympic gold in his trophy case—and a titanium plate in his hand. Injuries are part of the sport and Joss has suffered his share. Will a recent fall keep him from competing in the Polartec Big Air Event at Fenway Park?

Music helps get these athletes into the zone—and onto the podium

On the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team, having the right gear matters. And what’s in their ears is second only to what’s under their boots. Whether they’re doing a switch triple 1260 Japan or a right 270 on/pretzel 270 out, the songs playing through their headphones give them the lift they need.
