Monster Energy congratulates Nyjah Huston who continues to dominate Street League and appears simply unstoppable with his gold medal finish at Street League’s debut at the X Games. In front of a huge crowd of screaming Brazilian fans, Huston yet again delivered a mind-blowing barrage of technical skating and rolled away with another victory. Full results.
On Friday Huston easily qualified first for today’s final and came into the event ready to win. It was definitely a heated competition in true form where he wasn’t at the top spot throughout the entire competition going head to head with the competitors, but sealed the lead in the final Impact Section where he landed a backside 270 lipslide, Cab lipslide, 360 flip to lipslide and kickflip backside lipslide finishing nearly 10 points ahead of the nearest competitor Sean Malto, who took silver in the final showdown. Huston netted out with a final score of 48.8 and Malto finished at 39.8.
One of the biggest surprises of the week was that his teammate Chris Cole didn’t advance to the finals, but Shane O’Neill came out in sixth place in the final event scoring 31.2 and hitting some amazing tricks to include a bigspin backtail bigspin and a near make on an attempted bigspin front blunt.
