Double-threat Devin Logan, or “DLo” as her friends call her, is one of the most decorated female freeskiers out there with multiple overall AFP titles, X-Games medals, World Cup podiums, a silver halfpipe medal at 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada and of course an Olympic slopestyle silver medal on her long list of accomplishments.
After winning the season-opening New Zealand World Cup halfpipe in August 2012, Logan suffered a blown knee, which forced her off skis for almost a year. Committed to rehab and her college education, she stayed busy. That included becoming an AFP and FIS certified judge, and she judged some events while injured to have a better understanding of her sport. That commitment and sport knowledge paid off just in time for her to hop back on the 2013-2014 competition circuit and qualify for a spot on the inaugural U.S. Olympic Slopestyle Team. In Sochi, Devin threw one of the best runs of her life to take home the silver medal and make freeskiing history.
At 15 Logan was on the U.S. Championships podium, finishing second in halfpipe skiing and jump-starting her career. During 2011, her first full competition season, the 17-year-old Vermont native made her X Games debut in both halfpipe and slopestyle, collecting her first X Games medal with a halfpipe bronze at the European X Games. She earned her first U.S. halfpipe skiing title and the overall AFP crown to cap her rookie season. But Logan wasn't done there.
In 2016, Devin Logan wrote history when she became the first halfpipe and/or slopestyle skier to win the coveted FIS Freestyle Skiing overall crystal globe as the top athlete across all five of the Freestyle events in 2015/16. As she has throughout her career, Logan competed in both halfpipe and slopestyle this season, finishing seventh-overall in slope and second to Onozuka in halfpipe. Her combined results on the season gave her an overall-adjusted score of 88.20 to handily top ski cross athlete Anna Holmlund’s 81.25 for the big prize.
