Julia Marino earns 5th X Games medal in Aspen

The Winter X Games are considered the height of action sports achievement, and Dragon’s Julia Marino just reached the peaks of that height for the 5th time. The Connecticut shredder grabbed the silver medal in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle, the 5th medal of her career (and of the past calendar year).

“Hyped to come away with my 5th [X Games] medal here in Aspen, Colorado! Congrats to @jamieanderson for taking the gold and @ennirukajarvi for taking the bronze And thanks @xgamesfor putting together the most fun course as always,” Julia wrote on Instagram about the contest.
