DIAS SNARES FIRST SKATEBOARD VERT GOLD

LOS ANGELES – On Thursday at The STAPLES Center, Sandro Dias’ first run was good enough for Gold, as the Brazilian took home the X Games title in the men’s skateboard vert showdown.
Bob Burnquist nabbed silver and Bucky Lasek took home the bronze.
Andy Macdonald missed the podium, just 0.25 points behind Lasek.
The victory was the first X Games Skateboard Vert Gold for Dias, who won the bronze at X Games 11 and has won Vert titles multiple times at Latin X Games and Asian X Games competitions.
“I thought my score was too high,” quipped Dias, when asked if he was surprised his first run was enough for the victory. “But I love the judges.” That winning run included a Backside 540 McTwist to Tail, a Gnar Jar 540, Heel flip to front side slider and Ollie To Fakie.
Burnquist and Lasek both had strong runs with opportunities to take the gold, but in the end came up short. Burnquist on his final two runs fell on a switch kick flip after a frontside air to backside air.
“I feel very good about that run, because I connected every single obstacle on the ramp and it flowed all the way through,” said Burnquist. “The switch kick-flip that I couldn’t land – I’ll definitely loose sleep over that because I usually can land it. I think that if I had landed that, I might have got the gold.” Lasek put together a run that included a Frontside 540, Ollie Flip Fakie and Stalefish. “My body felt good for as battered as it was,” Lasek said. “I was feeling it on my third run but I was seeing about eight walls ahead of myself and fell on something easy.”

    Maybe you could help me out?

    Remembrance usually be orderly, I also be convinced of that the campus survival most teaches yearning. Since Preppie flourish not at any time normal, wishes catch on to to College Pizazz for lay out Cosmopolitanism disgrace why so long? Franklin and Marshall from the United States is a at all events, this period in more formal SEIBU, receive you back to the age of 17 years green.
    A distinguished edda usually starts with a journey. Franklin & Marshall’s story started with a voyage supporting one of America’s oldest colleges, Franklin and Marshall in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, which was founded in 1787.
    Giuseppe Albarelli and Andrea Pensiero arrived in Lancaster at the d‚nouement of the 1990s, accompanied around their significant passion representing North American college lifestyle, varied years of incident in the clothing sector and an idea: to achieve this look to Italy.
    This intriguing joining, between a artistic and a unexplored graduate in economics, both who were fanatical about fashion and the professors of this respected founding, along with Italian style and American lore, later led to the formation of a brand that today has become the emblem of college panache in Europe.
