Lindsay Jacobellis continued her dominating career in the Snowboarder X Women's discipline with a wire-to-wire victory, capturing the gold medal at Winter X Games 15.

The victory was her fourth consecutive win at the discipline and her seventh career Winter X Games gold - the most of any female competitor in the history of the event.

"This is my second go at it (four-peat), so it feels good to finally get it," said Jacobellis." I was just trying to get out in front and stay out of traffic so that I could pick whatever line I wanted to go for."

Jacobellis' teammate, Callan Chythlook-Sifsof weaved her way around the course to grab the silver, her first Winter X Games medal.

"Coming runner up to Lindsay feels good; she is one of the strongest riders in the world," said Chythlook-Sifsof." It is good to train with her and be part of the same team and it is good to be here."

2010 Winter Olympics silver medalist, Deborah Anthonioz, grabbed the bronze medal. The medal was also a first for Anthonioz at the Winter X Games.

In the mens finals, Six-year old Landon had never seen his dad, Nick Baumgartner, race in a competition.

But on Saturday afternoon at Winter X Games 15, he not only saw his dad race, he saw him win his first ever Winter X Games medal in the Snowboarder X Men's Final.

"Knowing that my boy was at the bottom was so phenomenal," Baumgartner said as he held Landon in celebration of his victory. "It got me down here every time just coming around the corner knowing that he would be watching. To win is unreal. I am so happy to do this in front of my boy."

But, Baumgartner wasn't the only first time medalist. Silver medalist Kevin Hill took the podium for the first time as well.

"I was gunning for the podium and I made it. This is the best race of my career thus far," a jubilant Hill said.

Nate Holland, who was attempting to achieve the first ever Winter X Games six-peat in the event took the bronze.

"It is kind of bittersweet, but I can't complain." Holland said. "I had an amazing streak there - five-in-a-row - and I am on the podium today. I gave it my all and that is all I can ask of myself."
