ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Heath Frisby landed the first ever front flip of a snowmobile at the Winter X Games on Sunday night.
The 27-year-old Frisby landed the trick in his first run during the best trick competition, earning the gold medal.
“It’s been everything really,” Frisby said during the ESPN telecast. “We got it! We got it!”
His feat came immediately after Justin Hoyer was injured attempting a double back flip in the previous run.
X Games spokesman Danny Chi said Hoyer fractured his left ankle and right forearm and was being discharged from the hospital.
