Louie VitoBellefontaine native and Olympian Louie Vito has earned another award.

Vito has been selected to receive the 2018 U.S. Ski & Snowboard Mike Jacoby Cup Award. The award is named after the most influential U.S. rider who committed to U. S. Snowboarding in its initial founding.

This award is given to a male or female rider for outstanding international competition performance in the current season.

Every young snowboarder at any camp or event has been high-fived or encouraged by Louie at some point in their career. Louie is always cheering on athletes at every level of competition. He stood at the bottom of the Olympic halfpipe and had words of encouragement for each athlete. He was key to helping Chloe Kim stay calm and helping her on her way to a gold medal.”

Vito will receive the award during the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Congress at the Chairman's Awards Dinner in Park City, Utah, on Thursday evening.
