This quintessential bowl skater is among the oldest in the field (37) but has style other skaters make a point to watch. The Park gold medalist from 2008 & 2009 (silver in 2010), Rune partially tore his left PCL right before the Pro-Tec Pool Party in May 2011, which hindered his entire 2011 season. A tough competitor known for overcoming pain to win (as he did at XG 2008), the Great Dane competed the 2011 campaign -- though his results reflected his injury -- and then took off the fall/winter to recover. A strong second at the May '12 Pro-Tec Pool Party points to a return to form. He's one of just 3 skaters to compete at every XG and has 10 total XG medals.
