Yuki became just the third Japanese athlete to win gold at an X Games winter event when he topped the Big Air field at XG Oslo 2016. It was his fourth X Games Big Air medal -- he also has a silver and two bronze. Still just 20 years old, Yuki's other accolades include wins at the inaugural Air + Style Los Angeles (2015), Burton U.S. Open slopestyle (2015), Air + Style Beijing (2012) and an overall FIS title (2013). Yuki won the U.S Open by landing a backside triple cork 1620 to a switch backside triple cork 1620 -- the first time in history back-to-back triple corks were landed in competition.
