British freestyle skier James Woods secured a bronze medal in the Ski Big Air event at the X Games in Aspen.

The 27-year-old racked up 82 points in the final to finish behind Norwegian 18-year-old Birk Ruud, who took gold, and Canada's Alex Beaulieu-Marchand.

It was a third X Games Big Air medal for Sheffield skier Woods, who won gold two years ago and bronze in 2018.

Meanwhile, Canadian Mark McMorris won an eighth X Games title with a slopestyle snowboard gold in Colorado.

It was a second medal this week for the 25-year-old, who secured silver in the Big Air event on Friday.

Winter Olympic champion Chloe Kim only needed a single run in the snowboard superpipe event, with the 18-year-old American clocking 84 points to clinch a fifth title.
