Youngest woman to ever win a gold medal at the X Games

Youngest woman to ever win a gold medal at the X Games

The hype has been around for a while, and 13-year-old Kelly Sildaru lived up to it today, holding off a field of older competitors to claim the gold medal in her first-ever X Games slopestyle appearance while setting the record for the youngest-ever female X Games champion to boot.
She scored a 93.00 on the first run, beating out silver medal-winning Tiril Sjåstad Christiansen's 91.66 run. Kelly, from Estonia, was starting in her first X Games.

She confirmed her catalyst status in December when she won the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, beating athletes who had been competing for as many years as she has been alive.
Sildaru’s winning run consisted of an absolutely dialed K-fed on the top rail, a clean switch 270 on, pretzel 270 out, and a polished performance in the jumps: switch 900 mute, a beautiful right cork 720 reverse mute, and a left 900 tail to round things out.

Kelly considers herself a “student with a keen freestyle skiing hobby”, she works on her craft on a 100-meter hill near her home “because we don’t have mountains.”
