After finishing the most recent season with nothing but wins, 2016 X-Games gold medalist freestyle skier Kelly Sildaru has reached the number one spot in the worldwide AFP (Association of Freeskiing Professionals) women’s slopestyle ranking.

While the Tallinn native has dropped from third to seventh place in the overall world freestyle rankings, which are currently led by American Devin Logan with 5,381.86 points, 14-year-old Sildaru, the Estonian freestyle skier who earned five out of five wins during the past slopestyle season, is currently topping the AFP women’s slopestyle world ranking with 3,875 points.

Norwegian Tiril Sjastad Christiansen, now in second place, trails Sildaru with 3,740.66 points, and Swede Emma Dahlström, in third place, has 3,639 points.
