Norwegian Snowboarder Tortstein Horgmo is a top talent that will be competing in the Big Air and Men's Slopestyle during the 2012 Winter X Games in Aspen, CO. Back in May of 2010 he became the first person to land a triple cork when he did so in Norway, and then he repeated his performance at Winter X Game 15 in 2011 on his way to a gold medal in the Big Air competition.

The 24 year old stands 5 feet 8 and has also won three other X Games medals in the Big Air competition during his career -- Gold in 2011 and Silver medals in 2010 and 2009.
