Trick: Backside 1440 triple cork mute
Two decades after it started, and the Air & Style is still delivering -- here to 15,000 slack-jawed spectators in Beijing's Olympic Bird's Nest Stadium in the event's second year in China. The rider providing the headline this time was Japan's Yuki Kadono, who became the first Asian winner of an Air & Style by sticking the event's first triple cork.
