Hailey Langland just stomped the first double cork by a female, in any discipline, at #XGames! https://t.co/wvMwmDHUlO

Hailey Langland turned 16 years old just last August, and the teenager made history at the 2017 edition of the Winter X Games on Thursday evening.

Langland became the first female to land a 1080 in any discipline at an X Games when she did so in the snowboard big-air event. As you probably guessed, that jump won the Californian gold, which was her first at an X Games.

Langland is no newbie, though, as she won bronze in the women's snowboard slopestyle at last year's X Games.

We expect this won't be the last you hear of her.
