Slovenian snowboarder Tit Stante is showing support for Meek Mill all the way from the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Slovenian snowboarder Tit Stante is out in Pyeongchang doing it for the culture. The 19-year-old athlete proudly showed off a Sharpie scribbling on his snowboard following a qualification event for the men's halfpipe event reading "#FreeMeekMill." The support is coming from an unexpected source as likely, not many people expected to see any signs of support towards the Philly rapper on their screens while watching the snowboarding in the Olympics.
Unfortunately, Stante's well wishes for Meek do not appear to have given him a boost of luck, or superpowers, as the young Slovenian is currently ranked 25th after the qualification rounds. The clear favourite to win the men's halfpipe event was 2006 and 2010 Olympic champion Shaun White, who did not disappoint as he currently leads the group after qualifying.
Meek was sentenced to two to four years of prison time for violating his probation. He has received support from his musical contemporary Rick Ross, Houston Rockets star James Harden and the co-owner of his hometown 76ers. The 2018 Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles ran out to "Dreams and Nightmares" during the Super Bowl last weekend, supporting the Philly native and the #FreeMeekMill movement, boosting streams for the song and raising awareness for the injustice behind Meek's sentencing. Tit Stante - keep showing out for Slovenia and big ups for supporting the movement.
