Kelly Clark has been there before. She has a slew of Winter X Games medals. She’s an Olympic champion (2002). She’s won the World Snowboard Tour.

What Clark did on Saturday night had a little to with a win.

Having already locked up another Women’s Snowboard Superpipe gold medal, Clark had a free pass for her final run. She decided to push women’s snowboarding to the next level.

On her third air of the run, she landed the first 1080 in competition ever.

It was executed with strength and grace, like she had done it a thousand times before.

She was mauled by her fellow competitors after making the historic feat. Competitors who now know they need the 1080 to keep up with Clark.

Kaitlyn Farrington took the silver medal and Elena Hight earned the bronze.
