Scotty James on the podium at the Winter Olympics


Scotty James is the latest Aussie to find the podium at the Winter Olympics winning silver in the snowboard half-pipe.


James best score of 91.75 was pipped by Japan's Ayumu Hirano final run of 96.00.


"I'm very proud and happy with how it went and my team and everyone," James told Channel Seven.


"I'm still really young. I still have a lot of vision. I'm very driven, and I made the joke before that I've got the bronze, I've got a silver and now I need to finish off my collection for the pool room with gold in Italy [in 2026].


"Italy is one of my favourite countries. I've already started the process, but for now I will enjoy this and just be very happy."


Fellow Australian Valentino Guseli finished sixth while American legend Shaun White finished fourth in his final Olympic outing.
