X Games Austin Day 2: Skateboard Big Air

Day two wrapped up under the lights with huge crowds as America’s Navy Skateboard Big Air took center stage and five of the sports best athletes fought windy conditions to prove who could show the best style, creativity and amplitude on massive ramp.14-year-old, Tom Schaar claimed his first-ever gold with the night’s most impressive run – a 720 over the gap into a 900 on the quarterpipe earning him a score of 89.00.

“This is crazy I can’t believe this all went down,” Schaar said. “It was a good contest, everyone was skating really well and it was crazy.” 

As the second youngest gold medalist in X Games history, he beat out Big Air legend Bob Burnquist, who as most decorated X Games athlete in history with 27 total medals, added a silver to his collection with score of 88.00.  Edgard Pereira rounded out the podium with a bronze-earning score of 87.00.
