About Sven

This 21-year-old Swede will make his 4th X Games appearance in Snowboard Big Air in Oslo. He hopes to bring a triple rodeo, which has never been landed at X Games, to earn his first Big Air medal. The 2014 Olympian (4th in slopestyle) has one X Games bronze Slopestyle medal and a serious bag of technical tricks that give him podium potential. He claims he tried a quad cork four years ago but didn't land it. He said he will try to find other ways to push progression rather than more and more spinning. He's returning to competition after a dislocated right shoulder when he over-rotated a triple backflip in November 2015.
