Alex Sorgente Takes Home X Games Gold
Huge congratulations to GoPro skate athlete Alex Sorgente for nabbing gold at the 2018 X Games Minneapolis. For the second year in a row, Alex dominated the men’s skateboarding park competition to take home the top honors.
Alex pushed away from the competition from the get-go, laying down an 89.00 on his first run. The judges, and crowd, loved the consistency and technicality of his trick choices, which were enough to lock him in a commanding lead throughout the comp. Tristan Rennie and Tom Schaar took the second with 87.66 and third with 85.33, respectively.
This back-to-back W gets Alex much closer to the ultimate goal of competing in skateboarding’s Olympic debut in Tokyo in 2020.
Again, congratulations on the well-deserved win, Alex! Check out the winning run on the official X Games website.
