Congrats are in order for Danny Davis this evening!
The 26-year-old professional snowboarder snagged the coveted gold medal for the second time in a row in the premier Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe competition at X Games Aspen 2015. Danny used a last run led off with a McTwist, a front side 900, backside 700, switch method cab 1080 and a front side double cork 1080 to capture gold with a score of 93.66.
Davis narrowly edged out Japan’s Taku Hiraoka who scored a 92.33 for silver – the same medal he captured in last winter’s Sochi Olympics. Switzerland’s Iouri Podladtchikov first run score of 89.00 was enough to win bronze.
When asked about his back-to-back win, Davis said, “I actually think this is the first thing I have ever done back-to-back. It is a good feeling man, you feel accomplished. It feels like a good accomplishment. It means I am snowboarding well and I landed a lot of runs today. That is a good feeling.”
