Henrik Takes Home Gold in Norway

The Iconic Swede Ups His X Game Medal Count to Five


Yet another round of X Games competitions has come and gone, and Henrik Harlaut finds himself on the podium for the second time in the year. And in honor of his accomplishment, we figured we’d take a look back at some of the more memorable moments of Henrik Harlaut’s illustrious competition career.

2013 X Games Big Air

Until the 2013 X Games in Aspen Colorado, triple corks in competition were merely the thing of rumors and internet fodder. Henrik brought it to the forefront with this gold medal performance. The Full Tilt skier dropped a confounding nose butter triple 16. In many ways, it marked a new era of competition skiing.

 

2016 – Viva La Chile

Against the sharp blues of the Chilean sky, Henrik dropped some of the more articulated jump tricks of all time. He tweaks every grab to the absolute limit — all while pushing the technical side of skiing. No wonder he landed at the top of the podium at the inaugural FIS Big Air competition with an absolutely mental switch double ten nose.

2014 Sochi Olympic Games

Despite the fact that Henrik missed the podium, the Swede put down a run to remember. With a nose butter triple, switch tail butter double, and a silky smooth rail section left a lasting impression. However, his skiing was overshadowed by the infamous Wu-Tang shoutout. Wu Tang is for the Children!

 

2017 X Games Real Ski

Henrik has always remained resolute in pushing the boundaries of all aspects of skiing. When he was tapped to produce an X Games Real Ski Segment, the ever-stoked E ‘Dollo dove in with reckless abandon. After two months of hard work, Henrik managed to walk away with the silver.

2017 X Games Oslo Big Air

However, nothing seems more impressive than Henrik’s recent win in Oslo. Despite the fact that Harlaut has executed his nose butter triple multiple times over the years, his latest iteration seemed so dialed and proper. But his second scoring trick, a double flat 1260 double japan to safety really cemented the victory. Henrik has never been one to let style fall by the wayside.
