Tom Schaar -- a skateboarding prodigy at the tender age of 12 -- recently landed the world's first 1080-degree spin, which subsequently landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records. Now he's made history a second time, becoming the youngest X Games gold medalist ever with top honors in the Mini MegaRamp event.

"I tried the 1080 once before the contest and then three or four times during the contest and was stoked to get it," Schaar said. "I'm just excited to be here and be skating with all of these pros that I've looked up to. It's the best feeling!"
