About Oystein

Norway's Braaten will be a favorite for gold in his home country at XG Norway 2018. He's delivered in front of the home crowd before, winning Slopestyle in at XG Norway 2017. Now a five-time XG medalist, Braaten has had an incredible run over the past two years: After two X Games Slopestyle gold in 2017, he claimed silver in both Big Air and Slopestyle at XG Aspen 2018 before taking Olympic gold in slopestyle in PyeongChang. A two-time winner of the AFP slopestyle title (2016 and 2017), Braaten -- who is a native of the tiny Torpo, Norway (pop. 405!) -- was nominated for a 2017 ESPY for Best Male Action Sports Athlete. Oystein's brother, Gjermund, has multiple X Games Snowboard appearances.
