Over the weekend, etnies vert skater extraordinaire, Rune Glifberg, earned highly respectable honors--both Silver and Bronze medals--in both the X Games IX Vert Finals and Vert Doubles competitions.
Putting ninety seconds of incredible skating together on any major vert ramp--let alone one with a fifteen-foot over-vertical bell extension, an eighteen-foot roll-in and two rounded corner extensions--is no easy feat for any skater, but, judging by the way he dominated the monster ramp at the X Games this weekend, it appeared to be all in a day's work for Mr. Glifberg.
In addition to earning a Bronze medal for his absolutely amazing skating in the Vert Finals event on Friday, Rune, not to be outdone, also walked away with a Silver medal with partner Mike Crum in the Vert Doubles contest on Saturday. The duo, affectionately dubbed "Crumberg", threw it down as hard as possible, coaxing cheers from the huge crowd time and time again.
etnies would like to acknowledge Rune on both of his X Games medals and for a job well done this weekend. Congratulations, Rune!
