In a final session featuring eight of the world’s best freestyle skiers, Henrik Harlaut dug deep into his technical bag of tricks to unveil a move never seen before in competition: On his third and final attempt, he landed a perfect left double cork 1260 bio to safety grab for a whopping 43.00-point score.
On his first attempt, Harlaut – freshly returned to the contest arena after undergoing knee surgery in May this year – already posted a switch left 1440 mute for 40.00-points. Tricks like these, together with his winning personality and ultra-baggy basketball shorts, made Harlaut a crowd favorite in Oslo today, and his overall score of 83.00 points earned him a well-deserved silver medal right behind American Alex Hall in first place. This result wasn’t really planned since his recent surgery, Harlaut only began riding again 14 days prior to X Games Norway.
Today’s Men’s Ski Big Air silver medal boosts Harlaut’s overall medal count to eleven (six gold and five silver). The 28-year-old Swede now ties his mentor, American freeski icon Tanner Hall, for most X Games ski medals.
