16-year old Japanese rider Yuki Kadono  took home the victory in the Superfinal of the Oakley Shaun White Air & Style Beijing 2012, sticking a Backside Triple Cork 1440 Mute in the last run of the contest in front of more than 15,000 spectators at the Bird´s Nest Olympic Stadium. With 97.67 he prevailed over Peetu Piiroinen(FIN/2nd/93,33 Pts.), Stale Sandbech (NOR/3rd/92.00 Pts.) and Mathias Weissenbacher (AUT/4th/34.33 Pts.) in a highly dramatic finale.

Yuki Kadono - Winner of the Air & Style Beijing - Bs triple cork 1440

Yuki Kadono: “I am very happy about today´s win. It is a great honor to be the first Asian Air & Style winner and the first rider to win an Air &Style with a Triple Cork. I have only stuck this trick once before and am always afraid before trying this very difficult trick, so it means all the more that I landed it today.
