"Prodigy: a person, especially a young one, endowed with exceptional qualities or abilities." Perfectly describing this 19-year-old from Surrey, B.C., the word "prodigy" has been linked to Anthony Messere since the age of 10. Since his breakout performance at Crankworx Red Bull Joyride in 2011, Anthony has been consistent in snagging podium spots. In 2014, he took the gold at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes Slopestyle as well as a 3rd place slot in the Red Bull Joyride. Prodigies become champions, and champions become legends. Legendary status is quickly approaching for this kid.
