This will be the first time Vito has competed in the Olympics games. He says he's anxious to hit the half pipe in Vancouver.

"I just kind of want to take it all in and enjoy it," Vito says. "It's been a dream of mine since I was little. Now that it's here, I just really want to take it all in. It's kind of like a once in a lifetime opportunity. Have fun and put down a run."

The Vancouver games begin on Feb. 12.
