It’s incredible, I’m pretty speechless about it, but I’m so stoked - Henrik Harlaut.
HAFJELL, Norway (PRWEB) March 12, 2017
Monster Energy’s Henrik Harlaut made history by clenching his fourth X Games Gold medal in Men’s Ski Big Air at X Games Norway 2017, which makes him the first male skier to ever win four gold medals in a single event.
Harlaut simply couldn’t be stopped this evening as he put down almost ever trick he attempted on the massive big air jump. Harlaut’s effortless style, floaty spins, and flawless landings helped earn a 92, which was the overall biggest score of the night.
Harlaut scored a 46 for his second jump in which he stomped an absolutely massive nose butter triple cork 1620 safety. This extremely complex trick seems to come easy for Harlaut who has it dialed and in his back pocket.
The Swedish skier picked up another score of 46 for his ultra smooth double rodeo 1260 dub Japan safety, which secured the win for him.
“It feels fantastic, I’m so so happy!” Harlaut said after the event. “It’s incredible, I’m pretty speechless about it, but I’m so stoked!” he continued.
When asked why he keeps coming back to push the progression in the sport Harlaut said, “I keep getting invited and I have this chance and the opportunity— Thank you, I’m very honored to be here, and it’s just so fun!”
