This feat in sports marks an important benchmark, similar to Tony Hawk’s 900-flip. This year he turned 20 and the skater celebrated on his Instagram account; coincidentally, both skaters accomplished these feats at the X Games.

At just 22 years, Mitchie Brusco has already won 10 medals in his professional career. He officially started in this competition in 2011.

The feat was achieved in the last edition of the X Games in a round of critical big air. Here, Brusco competed on par with Elliot Sloan for first place. However, despite making the flip that shocked everyone present, Mitchie got second place.

This is because, during the whole round of ramp tricks, Sloan accumulated more points. And although Brusco’s flips got a good score, they weren’t enough to get first place.

However, that did not take away the fact that he did a three and a half 360-degree flips. He landed perfectly and without any wobble that could cost him points, making history in skateboarding and the extreme gaming Olympics.

Undoubtedly, these achievements are worthy of being recognized among the professional skating community. It also shows the sporting effort that these activities entail, as well as the physical risks.
