Chris Corning has created history after becoming the first person to land a quad cork 1800 off a Big Air scaffold jump.
The 20-year-old American was in rare form at the Big Air World Cup in Atlanta and he had the crowd on their feet after attempting and landing four spins off a five-metre jump.
Watching the Visa Big Air competition happening in Atlanta (replay from last night's snowboarding events). Just got full body goosebumps watching this winning run from Chris Corning. Holy CRAP!!! Amazing skill...... https://t.co/EtXZsZ09DN— Jennifer (@HappyTwilighter) December 21, 2019
“He nails it,” the commentators said in disbelief.
“Almost goes down, but nails it.”

Corning was over the moon after sticking the landing and creating history.
The insane feat was lauded on social media for its high degree of difficulty.
Dang Chris Corning coming through with the strong finish! Okay this sport is cool and all... but you’ve got to be batshit crazy to do it. I could do somersaults until I was about 5... never in my life did a flip on the trampoline. Too risky.

Landed his quad cork 1800 for the first time in the U.S. and the first time on a scaffold big air jump.
