All the prelims are out of the way at X Games Tignes 2013, and now medals will be handed out at every event during Friday’s action.

Tignes, France has hosted the latest of the X Games 2013 Global Events, and it has been a fantastic show featuring many of the most exciting extreme athletes on the planet.

There is just one day left, and the remaining events will only contain those who are competing for hardware. 

Here is how to catch each and every second of Friday’s action.

Note: all results and scheduling info via ESPN.com.

 

Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle Final

When: 5:30-7 a.m. ET

Watch: ESPN3

Athlete to Watch: Torstein Horgmo

The 26-year-old Norwegian was on fire in the elimination stage for this event. He advanced atop the standings.

He was also the only player to score higher than 90.00 on all three of his runs. With that kind of consistent excellence, he has to be the favorite to win the gold.

Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle Final

When: 5:30- 9:30 a.m. ET

Watch: ESPN3

Athlete to Watch: Jamie Anderson 

At 22 years old, this rising American star has a bright future ahead of her.

But the present looks pretty good as well. She is coming off of a gold medal at this event in Aspen in January, and she is a serious threat to best the competition once again.

 

Men’s Ski SuperPipe Final 

When: 1-4 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN

Athlete to Watch: Kevin Rolland

Rolland is a hometown favorite in France, and he was truly impressive in the elimination round.

Although he fell during his second run, he was able to post the two best scores of the day in his first and third attempts. He has clearly taken well to the course and is in excellent position to win gold.

Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle Final

When: 1-4 p.m. ET 

Watch: ESPN

Athlete to Watch: Mark McMorris

It isn’t entirely fair that the Canadian star is this good already at just 19 years old.

McMorris won gold after recording an incredible score of 98.00 in his final run at Aspen, and his performances in this event should not be missed.

 

Women’s Ski SuperPipe Final

When: 3:30-5 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN3

Athlete to Watch: Maddie Bowman

When young athletes win gold in one event, its hard to bet against them two months later.

19-year-old American Maddie Bowman won the SuperPipe final in Aspen, and if she is able to perform as well as she did in Colorado, her fantastic 2013 will continue.
