Scotty James is on a roll, the Australian snowboarder winning his third consecutive halfpipe World Championship today in Park City, Utah. Scotty came out blazing on his first run, the judges awarding it a 94.25, a score that wasn’t surpassed for the rest of the final, until Scotty dropped a massive 97.5 on his third and final run.
James is having an excellent Northern Hemisphere season and today’s win came just a couple of weeks after he won the X Games in Aspen.
“I was pinching myself when I won my second world title and I’m triple pinching myself now that I’ve won my third one,” James said after his win. “It’s absolutely amazing.”
Japan’s Yuto Totsuka took silver with a score of 92.25 ahead of Switzerland’s Patrick Burgener who scored 91.25.
Australian team-mate Kent Callister finished fifth with a score of 79.00
