Mark McMorris - double gold!
Mark McMorris took gold in both the big air and the slopestyle in this year's winter X-Games. McMorris beat out Seppe Smitts, Eric Willet, Seb Toots, and Torstien Horgmo in the finals to take the top spot in the big air. The big air finals saw the first triple corks in competition by McMorris and Torstien, but McMorris's constancy beat Torstien's almost flawless last jumps. In the slope McMorris came out a head of Sage Kotsenburg (second) and Peetu Piironinen (third) with his smooth relaxed style taking him all the way to a bs 12 off the money booter at the end.
