About Kelly

Sildaru was just 13 yrs., 11 mos and 88 pounds when she took gold at XG Aspen 2016 in Women's Ski Slopestyle. She became the youngest gold medalist at a winter event, topping the record set by Chloe Kim in 2015 (and Kim broke a record that had stood for 15 years). She also became the second-youngest gold medalist in X Games history (behind Ryan Sheckler, who was 13 when he won Skateboard Park gold in 2003). Estonia's first XG medalist, Sildaru is unstoppable: She's podiumed at 22 out of 22 AFP slopestyle contests since Jan. 2013, including the Dec. 2016 Dew Tour in Breckenridge, which she won. Of course she did: She's won 20 of those 22 contests.
