Sage Kotsenburg (Park City, UT), who opened the Olympics winning gold in slopestyle snowboarding’s debut, won Best Male U.S. Olympian.
“So stoked to get my ESPY! It all seems so unreal still. Being in the audience with all those athletes that I look up to was awesome. I am so thankful for everything. Thank you to everyone that made this happen by voting,” said Kotsenburg.
U.S. Snowboarding was a well-represented sports organization at the 2014 ESPY Awards with four Olympic athletes nominated in five categories.
