Canadian snowboarder Max Parrot says he has “beaten” cancer and is targeting a return to competition next month.
Parrot, a slopestyle silver medallist at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics, was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in December.
But the 25-year-old has now been given the all-clear after last month completing his 12th and final round of chemotherapy.
"After battling myself to the best I could during these past seven months, I can finally say that I have won against cancer!" he wrote on Instagram.
Parrot is aiming to compete at an X Games big air event in Norwegian capital Oslo on August 31.
"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."
A five-times X Games gold medallist, Parrot last competed in November.
