After 8 appearances and 11 competition starts, Rony Gomes, 24, is still looking for that that first medal. He's been 4th in Big Air three times and in 2016 he will try again but will also be competing in Doubles. The Brazilian is also a vert skater and helped the discipline regain popularity in Brazil when he built a ramp that became a hotspot for his friends and other talent. He's talented at both lip tricks (heel and kickflips) and spins, including McTwists and 720s, and he has great amplitude. Rony spends as much time as he can in California, staying with his idol, fellow Brazilian Lincoln Ueda.
