Bob Burnquist wins Big Air at X Games 2012

Bob Bunrquist X Games 2012 Big Air Gold Medal Run
Bob Burnquist beats Mitchie Brusco for his fourth gold in Skateboard Big Air.

In the Big Air today at the X-Games, Bob Burnquist defeated nine other skaters who made Friday’s final of Skateboard Big Air, winning his fourth gold on the massive 60-foot ramp.

Bob Burnquist was injured during practice Tuesday, when he sustained a lower back injury after smacking his tailbone. But when X-rays showed nothing was broken, X Games medical staff said he was good to go. In order to win, Bob Burnquist did a huge switch backside 180 ollie over the 65-foot gap and forward-to-fakie indy grab 720 on the 27-foot quarter pipe that gave him a high score at 94.3.

On the other hand, Mitchie Brusco, 15, landed a 720 grab over the smaller 50-foot gap, then launched into a massive 900, taking silver with a score of 92.33. Nolan Munroe, 17, rounded out the podium with a bronze medal in his Big Air debut, landing what on-air commentator Tony Hawk estimated might have been the biggest McTwist 540 of all time, for a score of 91.00 that bumped two-time Big Air gold medalist Jake Brown off the podium.
