Kelly Sildaru – Women’s Big Air – Silver

What more needs to be said for Kelly Sildaru, she’s destined to be the most decorated athlete in X Games history before the age of 18. After dominating the slopestyle course Kelly shows the world that the Big Air course is next on her list. Being too light to make the jump herself her coach has to push her down the course to make sure she clears the jump.  Check out the 15 year old Kelly Sildaru’s run below:
