Winter X Games results 2016: Lindsey Jacobellis wins 10th snowboarding gold medal

Jacobellis has won 10 of her 13 X Games Snowboarding X events entered.

On the fourth and final day of the 2016 Winter X Games in Aspen, Lindsey Jacobellis continued her domination of women's snowboarding, winning her 10th career X Games gold medal.

Jacobellis finished with a winning time of 1:00.957 in the Women's Snowboarding X final, narrowly defeating silver medalist Eva Samkova of the Czech Republic, who had a time of 1:00.998. Nelly Moenne Loccoz took the bronze with a time of 1:02.943.

Look at how close those Jacobellis and Samkova finished:

For Jacobellis, it was her 10th gold medal in Snowboarding X in her 13th time entering the event. She has the most gold medals of any woman in X Games history, and her .769 winning percentage is the best of any X Games athlete with at least 10 starts in a single discipline.

In the Men's Ski Slopestyle, Jossi Wells won his first career X Games gold medal, the first for New Zealand since 1997. It was the fifth career medal for Wells and in three different events, including three silvers and a bronze. Wells was already in the lead heading into his third and final run, but improved his score with a 90.00 to secure the gold.

Gus Kenworthy won the silver medal with a score of 87.33, and Oystein Braaten took home the bronze with a best run of 84.33.

In the final event of this year's X Games, the Women's Snowboard SuperPipe, 15-year-old Chloe Kim defended her gold medal with yet another win, this time over Arielle Gold.
