Skateboard Vert at X Games Austin 2014 Made History and Broke Hearts [GALLERY]

It was a night for history and heartbreak at this year’s X Games Skateboard Vert final. Athletes took two wall-to-wall runs across a 60-foot halfpipe, combining technical spins and lip tricks. Judges ranked riders based on aggressive execution, variety, originality, continuity of run, style and degree of difficulty.

Twenty-year-old Jimmy Wilkins became the youngest Vert gold medalist in the history of the games, narrowly beating out crowd favorite Sandro Dias with a stylish run that included a mind-blowing ollie 540. Wilkins’ victory ended veteran and crowd favorite Bucky Lasek’s streak of four consecutive gold medals. Forty-one-year-old Lasek, still recovering from a recent elbow injury and wearing a shirt that read “I’m hurt, not old,” placed last.
