Kidzworld's Top Extreme Athletes 2004

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)!
