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.
