Sports[edit]

The following were the events at Winter X Games 14.

Highlights[edit]

Winter X Games XIV took place just two weeks before the start of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Many of the events such as the snowboard cross, ski cross, and half pipe events acted as a prelude and set the tone for the Vancouver Olympics.

Kaya Turski of Canada landed the highest score in slopestyle history at the X Games winning gold. In the same event, Sarah Burke tried to land a 1260 during her third and final run. Had she landed the 1260, this would have been the first time a woman had landed it during competition.[1] Heath Frisby and Levi Lavallee, favourites in the snowmobile freestyle event, fail to qualify for the final, opening the door for Justin Hoyer, who went on to win the gold.[2]

Sarah Burke failed in her attempt at a four-peat in the skier superpipe when she finished sixth, Jen Hudak won gold and 17-year-old phenom Megan Gunning won silver. Burke had predicted a year earlier that Gunning would be her biggest threat in an attempt to four-peat in the superpipe.[3]

In the men's snowboard superpipe final, Shaun White won gold despite injuring himself 45 minutes prior to the final, in practice when he tried a 1080 inverted double cork. He did land two double corks back to back in the final and also added a double McTwist 1260 to seal off his gold medal run.[4]

Nate Holland won his fifth consecutive gold medal in men's snowboard cross. This was the first five-peat in the history of the Winter X Games. Lindsey Jacobellis also became the first person to win a double three-peat, when she won the women's snowboard cross for the third year in a row. Her first three-peat was 2003–2005.[5]

On the final day of competition, Ophélie David successfully completed the first four-peat in women's Winter X Games history, again winning the gold in skiercross.[6] In the men's skiercross, the Canadians won a sweep of the medals, led by Chris Del Bosco. This was a first sweep of a Winter X Games medal round by a country other than the United States.[7] With the men's sweep, along with Ashleigh McIvor and Kelsey Serwa's silver a bronze respectively, the Canadians won 5 out of 6 possible medals in ski cross.
