Max Parrot: Canadian snowboarder says he has 'beaten' Hodgkin lymphoma
Canadian snowboarder Max Parrot, who won slopestyle silver at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics, says he has "beaten" cancer.
The 25-year-old, a five-time X-Games gold medallist, was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma on 21 December 2018.
He had his 12th and final round of chemotherapy in June.
"After battling myself to the best I could during these past seven months, I can finally say that I have won against cancer!" he said on Instagram.
Parrot now aims to compete for the first time since his diagnosis at an X-Games big air competition in Oslo, Norway, in August.
"I definitely think I may be going too fast into it, but this is how I am," he told the Canadian Press.
"This is how I've done everything. This is how I got to be a pro snowboarder.
"I've beaten cancer, but my body is not back to normal yet. I feel like I'm getting back my muscles and my cardio and my energy, but there's still a lot of work to be done."
