Snowboarder Nick Baumgartner of Bates Township took the podium for the second year in a row with a silver medal finish at 2012 Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo. It was a U.S. sweep on Jan. 28 for the men’s snowboarder X with Nate Holland of Sandpoint, Idaho, winning gold in 1:27.570; Baumgartner second in 1:28.102; and Jayson Hale of Sierraville, Calif., taking bronze in 1:33.273. “I was doing everything I could to hang on and get myself in position where, if something should happen, I could capitalize on it,” said Baumgartner. “It wasn’t the way I wanted, to get second, but I will take it.” (Eric Lars Bakke/ESPN Images photo)
