Yuki Kadono became the third Japanese athlete to win gold at an X Games winter event when he topped the Big Air field at Oslo in 2016. Now 21 years old, Yuki joined a small number of humans on the planet to have landed a quadruple cork when he did so in May of 2017. Yuki's was a backside quadruple cork 1980 ¿ the most rotations ever landed on a snowboard. Yuki won the U.S Open in 2015 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.
