Lisa Zimmerman wins first ever X Games Women’s Ski Big Air gold medal in Aspen.
The German freestyle skier Lisa Zimmermann edged out Kleey Sildaru by a single point to claim the maiden gold medal in Women’s Ski Big Air. Zimmerman landed a perfect switch double 10 to move into top spot and held onto the lead before sealing the victory with a textbook cork nine truck.
The 20-year-old, who is also the reigning World Champion in Slopestyle, said afterwards: “I can’t believe it. I thought I would never ever land it (switch double 10). I am kind of surprised I landed it but I couldn’t be happier right now.
“I have been waiting for an invitation for the last three or four years and didn’t get one so I was surprised I got this year. It means a lot.”
