McMorris claims record breaking medal at X-Games

Mark McMorris earned his 21st career X Games medal after putting up a gold-medal performance in the men’s snowboard slopestyle this weekend.

McMorris executed a near-perfect run to win the event in Aspen on Saturday.

With the win, McMorris now owns the record for most medals for a Winter X Games athlete, passing the U.S.’ Jamie Anderson’s total of 20.

McMorris is set to compete in the Beijing Olympics next month as apart of Team Canada’s Snowboarding team.
