24 seconds with Crispin Lipscomb
BOB MACKIN -- 24 Hours Vancouver

Snowboarder Crispin Lipscomb of Whistler finished 16th in men's halfpipe on Feb. 12 and stuck around to challenge other athletes at B.C.-developed video games at British Columbia Canada Place on Saturday in Turin.

24 hours: Do video games help in training?

Crispin Lipscomb: "I love playing snowboard games because it lets you do things you couldn't quite do in real life. For me, video games are a huge part of my training, because it's what I like to do to calm back down after a hard workout at the gym or a long contest."

24 hours: Which is your favourite video game?

Crispin Lipscomb: "Right now it's EA Sports NHL 2006."

24 hours: When you're not boarding or playing video games, you're a multimedia wiz.

Crispin Lipscomb: "I do a lot of editing, in the past I did a diary of the team on the road for CBC. I started playing with Photoshop."

24 hours: Talk about the charity you've started.

Crispin Lipscomb: "My dream is to get gear and funding to young kids who couldn't afford to otherwise, lift passes to those who want to go up, then, for those who are getting into clubs and coaching, mentorship opportunities."
