With a possible podium run almost over, all Full Tilt skier Patrick Deneen had to do was land a conservative trick on his last jump and he would have had a chance to place. Only problem is Patrick didn’t want to go for the Bronze, he wanted to go for Gold. So with his last jump he attempted a trick he hadn’t even perfected in practice, the D-Spin.
Here’s Patrick practicing the D-Spin.
He was going big on the big stage. Unfortunately he landed lower and ended up sliding across the finish line. But the commitment to reaching the top in a big way will continue to lead Patrick Deneen to future wins, and hopefully Gold.
