    The medals have been awarded. The flame has been extinguished. The talk show circuit is complete. The Kellogg’s cereal boxes are on the shelves. Shake it out. Exhale. It’s over. The Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia are at their end. The world watched as skiers and snowboarders put on some of the most exciting performances of the Games. New stars arose; some pre-existing ones excelled as well. Joss Christensen shocked the freeskiing world; Jamie Anderson reaffirmed her dominance in snowboarding Slopestyle. Mark McMorris was humble and professional despite adversity; 15-year-old Ayumu Hirano was quiet yet explosive. Shaun White didn’t have his best days, nor did Kaya Turski – but both will be back. Sports aren’t predictable. Sports aren’t always fair. The Olympics proved those facts, for better or worse. And in the end, in total, Oakley athletes won 84 medals at the 2014 edition of the Winter Olympics.

    In the end, Joss Christensen could only throw his head back and smile. He watched as 11 competitors rode their second and final run of the Slopestyle finals, and one after another, they couldn’t match him. His first run, highlighted by a beautiful switch triple cork 1260 – the only of the competition – resulted in an insurmountable score (95.80). Big name after big name tried, but failed. And the last skier standing, the one who would get the victory lap, was the one who almost didn’t even make the trip to Sochi.

    The stakes are always high at X Games. At this event above all other, the Action Sports community is on lookout for the newest tricks from the biggest names, and even, from those names who aren’t yet as familiar. The next big thing is always just a run away.
