A Gold Medal Fan

This is part of a weekly series, published fresh on Thursday mornings. 

 •  

Donning his Number 18 Peyton Manning jersey, Broncos fan Matt Ladley won his first gold medal at the X Games Aspen 2016 superpipe. He got some serious air—check out his 19-foot jump here—which earned him first place. During his post-competition interview, Ladley gave his favorite team a shout out, because Coloradans ride together. A Steamboat stalwart, he moved to the Centennial State when he was 11 to pursue a professional snowboarding career. Competing against Olympic riders from all over the world last weekend, this was a big accomplishment for Colorado and 24-year-old Ladley. Dare we say we’re up for another win on Sunday?
