US Wins 1st Gold Medal Of Sochi Olympics, Kotsenburg Wins Slopestyle

Sage Kotsenburg has won the first Gold Medal at the Sochi Olympics, bringing home the Gold for the US Team on the Slopestyle event. The Park City Utah resident was no stranger to the slopes, and remained focused on winning the Gold Medal he set out for at the Olympics. Despite not being the projected favorite to win the event coming into the weekend, Kotsenburg showed the judges a jaw dropping performance earning a score of 93.50 overall. Second place went to Norway’s Staale Sandbech, and Bronze went to Canada’s Mark McMorris.

Kotsenburg NikeSlopestyle is a new Olympic event where competitors snowboard downhill and leap over jumps to attain high altitude while performing tricks that judges place scores on. These 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are the debut event for Slopestyle in the Olympics. While new to the Olympics, Slopestyle has been a crowd favorite at the Winter X Games and other extreme winter sporting events for a few years. This year’s event at Sochi had many fans hoping to see Shawn White compete, but he withdrew from this event earlier this week after having some concerns about the overall safety of this event. Perhaps White can make up for it in some other Men’s Snowboarding events during these Winter Games.

Sage Kotsenburg, being a Park City Utah native has grown up around the ski slopes his entire life. He has been snowboarding with his family since he was only 5 years old, meaning that at his young age of 20 he already has 15 years of experience under his belt. While being super competitive, Kotsenburg is a self-professed “chill dude.” He is one who appears calm under pressure, while not seeming over-confident or cocky. His laid back attitude is part of what the sport of Snowboarding is all about. For some, snowboarding is still recreation even if it means you are at the Olympics being judged in front of the whole world.
