ZHANGJIAKOU, China (AP) — Spanish snowboarder Queralt Castellet is 32 years old and at her fifth Olympics. She rarely has felt more on top of her game than this time around in Beijing.

On top of that, she can’t recall having this much fun.

Castellet is feeding off the energy of this younger generation of snowboarders.
