Sammy Carlson was so intent on winning the gold medal he made it count in his first run and never moved an inch. His winning run consisted of a hand-drag 3 over the bonk, a 450 on to 630 out on the rainbow rail, 630 poke out of the cannon box, switch double back 9 and a double 10 to hand him the gold.

Russ Henshaw could only take silver after an impressive few runs. 270 on to 270 off, lipslide 270 on, 270 onto the rainbow rail, 630 off the cannon box, double 12, switch dub 9 to a double 12 for silver. It was one hell of a run!

There had to be a third place and Andreas Hatveit seemed to want it more! He pushed out Bobby Brown with a 270 on and lipslide 270 on the downrail feature, misty 450 off the rainbow rail, switch 1080, switch 9, double 10 and a double 12! He also went for the switch 1440 on his second run, but couldn’t land it.

Final results are:

1. Sammy Carlson
2. Russ Henshaw
3. Andreas Hatveit
4. Bobby Brown
5. Henrik Harlaut
6. Elias Ambühl
7. Phil Casabon
8. Gus Kenworthy
