Norway’s Marcus Kleveland claimed his third successive men’s snowboard Big Air gold at the X Games in Aspen.

Kleveland hit the ground running with a great first run as he finished with a superb total of 96 points at the Colorado venue.

After a poor start, Japan’s Takeru Otsuka saved his best runs until last as he scored 90 to secure second spot.

Olympic champion Su Yiming of China also won his first-ever X Games medal as he sealed bronze with 87.

Japan’s Reira Iwabuchi denied New Zealand’s Zoi Sadowski-Synnott a second gold medal of this year’s X Games when she triumphed in the women’s snowboard Big Air.

After winning yesterday’s women’s slopestyle title, Olympic gold medallist Sadowski-Synnott was seeking to defend her Big Air crown.

But the New Zealander was edged out by Iwabuchi who won by the smallest of margins.

Iwabuchi notched 87 for victory as Sadowski-Synnott came second with 86 and Laurie Blouin of Canada totalled 82 for bronze.

Britain’s Zoe Atkin was crowned women’s ski superpipe champion in Aspen as she seized her opportunity following injuries to freestyle skiing stars Eileen Gu of China and Kelly Sildaru of Estonia in training.

Rachael Karker of Canada claimed silver, while Svea Irving of the United States bagged bronze.

There was home success in the men’s ski slopestyle as American Colby Stevenson emerged victorious.

Stevenson overcame compatriot Mac Forehand who picked up silver as Norway’s Ferdinand Dahl completed the top three with bronze.

South Korea’s 14-year-old star Gaon Choi made history by becoming the youngest winner of the women’s snowboard superpipe title.

She proved too strong for American Maddie Mastro who claimed silver, while two-time world champion Cai Xuetong of China sealed bronze.
