On the slopestyle circuit, Sherlock “Shezza” Holmes is the hottest thing on a snowboard right now; he’s just knocked Charly Agust Magnussen off the No 1 spot in the world tour rankings after back-to-back wins at the World Cup and the Winter X Games, has landed more triples in competition than any other boarder, and is widely tipped to take the Slopestyle gold for Team GB in Sochi. And that’s what Sherlock cares about; perfecting his tricks, getting his runs spot on … winning.
However the media are more interested in the ongoing feud between him and Charly, the antics of his army of fans (Shezza’s Sugars), and the fact he’s the only pro male snowboarder in an openly gay relationship - with John Watson, an ex-army combat medic who is now Sherlock’s personal trainer as well as his lover. Unfortunately for Sherlock, and for John, it looks like the media might be right about what’s really going to affect how Sherlock competes on the slopes of Rosa Khutor.
