ASPEN, CO– Three-time Olympian Kelly Clark (West Dover, VT) secured her fourth-straight X-Games gold medal in the women’s halfpipe snowboarding final Saturday just two weeks ahead of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

The final featured six USs women out of eight athletes. Thirteen-year-old Chloe Kim (La Palma, CA) earned silver during her first X-Games appearance, while Olympian Kaitlyn Farrington (Bellevue, ID) took bronze.

Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton Mountain, VT) took snowboardcross gold at the X-Games Friday. Jacobellis also reeled in her eighth X-Games gold, making her the winningest woman in X-Games history after spending two seasons recovering from knee injuries.
