WATCH: Kelly Clark nails first ever women’s 1080 in competition at X-Games

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 31, 2011 11:57 am

Kelly Clark continues to be a huge factor in Women’s Snowboarding.  Oympic Gold, all the way back in 2002 and  X-games Gold in 2011.  In a sport where younger competitors seem to rise to the top, she continues to amaze and define her sport.  It’s really quite impressive when you think of the ages of all this years medal winners.  She raises the level of progression in women’s snowboarding by stomping a 1080 during her victory lap in Women’s Snowboard SuperPipe at Winter X Games 15.  She did it on the 3rd hit and she probably could have nailed another one but on this night, one was good enough for the record books.  Congrats, Kelly!  Take a look at some of her medal accomplishments and career highlights below the video.
