The problem with x-games big air
As most of you know I'm an avid skier, and followed last weeks x-games with an eagle like eye. However, the one problem I had was with the big air competition. PK Hunder one of the best skiers in the world was robbed by Simon Dumont. For this fiasco you cant blame the judgeing or the venue, you can only blame yourselves. This year espn let the audience vote for the winner of the big air competition, and this was one of the biggest mistakes in skiing in recent memory. Simon Dumont was clearly outdone by PK, and only won because he is American. Yes, the American audience did vote for the American even though he clearly was the lesser of the two. So next year espn higher some judges for big air.
