Aspen X Games | Skiing Winning Runs
LifeProof sponsored Winter X Games 2017 kicked off with a bang in Aspen Colorado, and if you’re here, you’re more than likely only interested in hearing what the best skiers in the world got up to. Check out all the adrenaline-inducing winning runs right here:
Women’s Ski Super Pipe
Despite issues with the pipe’s shape, Marie Martinod of France brought her A game to the X Games last week. At 32 years of age, she is almost twice the age of many of her competitors. However, she shows time after time why she is the best. Pulling off an 89.33 in her first run Marie was unstoppable.
Men’s Ski Super Pipe
After joking about never landing a clean run in the Super Pipe in his past 4 X Games appearances, Aaron Blunck came out in force and was one of very few riders that were able to land a clean run, again due to the pipe not being vertical enough.
Unfortunately, Team LifeProof’s star Kevin Rolland was unable to finish his run after being thrown from the track by the misshaped wall.
Women’s Ski Slopestyle
The teen sensation that is Kelly Sildaru came to X Games 2017 with all eyes on her after taking home the gold last year. To top it all off, she was the youngest competitor to ever take home a gold medal. Kelly stomped her first run to claim 92.33 points. That score launched her into gold medal contention, but she wasn’t happy and tried to come out bigger.
“I know I can do a better run, but it ended up well. My first run wasn’t (as) good as the last one,” said Sildaru, whose second run was scored a point lower than her first. “I wanted to do a better run.”
Now Kelly is the youngest athlete to hold two gold medals. Watch this space, as Kelly has no intentions of slowing down.
Men’s Ski Slopestyle
Oystein Braaten claimed his first career gold in front of a global audience during his X Games performance. Check out the incredible flow in the below run to see why he score 94.33.
Womens Ski Big Air
Pulling off the first ever switch double cork 1080 in Women’s history claimed Lisa Zimmerman her first ever gold at X Games. Check out history in the making in the her run right here.
Mens Ski Big Air
After landing two triple corks, Britain’s James Woodsy Woods claimed his first ever gold ahead of Sweden’s Henrik Harlaut on the count back after both men scored 88.
