In Sochi, Kenworthy was part of the third-ever U.S. sweep of a Winter Olympic event. He won silver behind Joss Christensen and ahead of Nick Goepper.

On Sunday, Goepper was third and Christensen fifth. Norwegian Oystein Braten, who was 10th in Sochi, finished second in Breckenridge.

Kenworthy was also fourth in ski halfpipe on Saturday after qualifying first into that final.

In men’s snowboard slopestyle, U.S. Olympian Chas Guldemond prevailed with a first-run 92. Guldemond failed to make the final in Sochi.
