2. Dave Mirra Takes Home 3 Gold Medals, 1998

Legendary moments from down the years

Dave Mirra made history in ’98 by becoming the first athlete to win three golds at one event, taking victory in BMX Vert Doubles, BMX Park and BMX Vert.

Looking back, it’s a shame the BMX vert doubles, one of the events he dominated, didn’t catch on. Mirra claims that in his 20 year X Games career, the doubles run with rival and close friend Dennis McCoy was a defining moment for him.

And it’s pretty crazy to watch too – I mean just check out the crazy back-tap at 2:03!
