Alongside Britain’s Mia Brookes becoming the first woman to stomp a 1440 at X Games 2024, to win gold just after celebrating her 17th birthday, a number of other records were set by some of the more established stars.

Three days of the 2024 X Games in Aspen in Colorado highlighted by Chloe Kim’s majestic return to the event and Tess Ledeux’s awe-inspiring domination in two disciplines.

After taking a year off following the 2022 Winter Olympics, Chloe Kim returned to the half-pipe with a bang!

The double Olympic Gold medalist (pictured top) took the win in Colorado this weekend, not without setting a record in the process: Friday, she became the first woman in history to land a 1260 competitively. A historical feat that Chloe had been working at for a while:

“I’ve really wanted to do that trick for a long time. I had attempted it in Beijing, and I wanted to give it a shot! I wish it was a little cleaner, but I’m really stoked I was able to put it down!”

This marks Chloe’s 7th X Games Gold medal, thus tying Kelly Clark’s historical record in the discipline.

An X-Games fixture in both Big Air and Slopestyle, France’s Tess Ledeux came in for the sweep this weekend with some incredible runs that left audiences and commentators speechless.

The 22-year-old took the win in Big Air on Saturday with a final score of 90 before easing into Slopestyle the following take and taking a 95.33 for three runs that had Tess beside herself, commenting:

“I can’t believe it… I just landed my best slopestyle run ever.”

With this double-feat, Tess’ X-Games medal total count goes up to ten, making the only athlete in history – male or female- to win gold in both events twice!

Both Chloe Kim and Tess Ledeux are members of Team Roxy, the first and only major exclusively-female global action sports brand.
