With yet another victory at the X Games, Maddie Bowman has extended a winning streak to historic proportions.
The 21-year-old from South Lake Tahoe, Calif., captured her third-consecutive ski halfpipe title in Aspen, Colo., on Wednesday night, equaling a mark set by Sarah Burke from 2007 to 2009.
"I grew up idolizing Sarah Burke," Bowman said. "And the first time I met her was at the X Games."
Burke died in a training crash in 2012.
"Sarah is the reason we're here," Bowman said.
