HAFJELL RESORT, Norway – March 9, 2020 – The fifth edition of X Games Norway is officially a wrap! Monster Energy, the official energy drink of X Games Norway 2020, congratulates its athletes on a strong performance at the world’s premier action sports event. Over the course of two-action-packed days, the world-class team earned nine medals across Freeski and Snowboard disciplines, claiming three gold, three silver, and three bronze medals.
This weekend’s gold medal-winning performances included Monster Energy’s Maggie Voisin from White Fish, Montana, who took gold in Women’s Ski Slopestyle as her second gold in the discipline. In Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle, rookie pro Zoi Sadowski-Synnott from New Zealand dominated the field to claim her second X Games Slopestyle gold. And in one of the weekend’s biggest surprises, Canadian Monster rider Max Parrot showed his true grit as an all-round competitor by besting the world elite in the Monster Energy Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle event.
Now in its fifth consecutive year and supported by Monster Energy as the official drink sponsor, X Games Norway 2020 showcased the highest level of progression in freestyle snow sports. The event was followed by a live audience at Hafjell Alpinsenter (about 120 miles north of Oslo) and connected live stream viewers worldwide.
Featuring the world’s best athletes, the competition awarded 26 medals across Ski and Snowboard Big Air, Slopestyle as well as Knuckle Huck disciplines. The invite-only event saw 40 athletes from twelve countries battling for X Games medals. Rounding out an unforgettable weekend on the mountain, X Games Norway 2020 also featured concerts by hot musical acts Arif, Musti, Chris Abolade, and Alan Walker.
Here’s how the action unfolded for team Monster Energy across Ski and Snowboard disciplines in Norway this weekend:
