Olympic gold medalist and Alpha Omega Academy graduate Sage Kotsenburg returned to competition last weekend during the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado.
The 21-year-old who resides in Park City, Utah, finished in 5th place in men’s snowboard slopestyle, the same event in which Kotsenburg won an Olympic gold in Sochi last year. Of Sage’s three runs in the finals, his best score was 83.33. Mark McMorris won the event with a score of 96.0. The Canadian also won the big air snowboard event at this year’s X Games.
