Spencer O’Brien Wins 2016 X Games Slopestyle
Dropping in for her final run, Spencer O’Brien was sitting on the edge of the podium with a score of 79.33. After being penalized for missing a grab on her switch backside 720, Spencer knew she had to clean up her run if she was going to have a shot at X Games gold. Off the first jump Spencer stomped her switch back 7 sending her into the second jump set for a cab 540. Coming into the final jump, Spencer stomped a front 7 off the toes and landed the consistent and clean run she needed to win her first-ever Women’s Slopestyle gold.
