Winter X Games 15: Torstein Horgmo and Recapping the Winners From Day Two

Torstein Horgmo rocked the action sport world by landing the first triple cork in Winter X Games history.

The Norwegian entered the competition with broken ribs and crashed on his first throw.  He still managed to come up with two killer runs to win the gold medal with a total score of 80.

The new Snowboard Big Air champ tweeted, “Head hurts, ribs hurt, somehow the best night ever though.”

This is the second time Horgmo has taken a WX gold in Big Air.

Young Canadian Sebastien Toutant took the silver medal. His perfectly executed Backside 1260 actually scored higher than Horgmo’s triple.  He finished with a combined score of 79.

American sophomore Sage Kotsenburg's score of 77 was good enough for bronze.
