Who got the biggest air? Who landed the sickest tricks? Kidzworld checks out some of the top action sports athletes from 2004.

Shaun White - Snowboarder/Skater Another year of big air, big hair and extreme domination for Shaun White. White defended his snowboarding slopestyle gold medal at the 2004 Winter X Games and had a top ten finish in vert skateboarding at X Games X. White also released The Shaun White Album - one of the year's best snowboarding DVDs.

Danny Way - Skateboarder

Danny Way was way out of control in 2004, lauching big air and defying gravity like nobody's business. Way got 23 feet of air after launching across a 70 foot gap to win the X Games X Big Air Skateboarding event. Not only did Way win gold, he also set a Guiness World Record for distance when he landed a 79 foot backside 360 during practice!

Dave Mirra - BMX

Despite a nasty wipeout in September that left him with a broken hand, 2004 was still a pretty sweet year for Dave Mirra. The BMX master picked up gold medals the Bike Stunt Park and Bike Stunt Vert events at X Games X. Dave Mirra has now won 18 medals from the X Games - more than any other athlete. To top it all off, Mirra also won gold at the 2004 Gravity Games in Cleveland.

Nate Adams - Motocross Master

Nate Adams took his bike on dirt, ice, snow and everywhere in between in 2004. Adams took two medals in motocross at X Games X, including the gold in freestyle. He also won a gold in freestyle motocross at the 2004 Gravity Games and finished third in the best trick competition for motocross on snow at the Winter X Games.

Hannah Teter - Snowboarding Chick
Teenage snowboarder, Hannah Teter, was one of the highlights of the 2004 Winter X Games after her gold-medal win in the women's snowboarding Super Pipe. Hannah stomped all over the competition and did her final run wearing no shirt and no helmet (not recommended)!

    Guys should be able to do cheer without being bullied. Some of my best guy friends cheer with me and it just makes the whole experience that much better. Other guys should be jealous because they don't get to help girls stretch or lift them up 20 ft into the air hahaha
