    Nico Porteous has achieved a lifelong dream

    Nico Porteous has achieved a lifelong dream


    He's won the men's X-Games freeski superpipe in Aspen, becoming the first New Zealand athlete to claim gold in the discipline.

    He's also the first freeskier to land both his right double 1620 and the combination of a right double 1620 into a left double 1620 in a halfpipe competition.
