    Rune Glifberg has been apart of X Games since the beginning. He was on hand that first year in 1995 when the event was called Extreme Games and ESPN and the greater sporting landscape were still trying to wrap their respective heads around where action sports fit into the bigger picture. Nearly 20 years later, Rune is an icon in skateboarding, an eight-time X Games medal winner, and at 39 is still a contender for the podium every year.
