Yiwei Zhang becomes the first snowboarder in the world to land a triple cork in the halfpipe.

It was a long time coming, but Chinese pipe rider Yiwei Zhang has become the first in history to land a triple cork in the stunt ditch, yesterday at the Bud Keene Progression Camps at Mammoth Mountain, CA.

It's been an insane week for the progression of snowboarding, with the first ever backside quad cork 1800 and cab quad underflip being landed by Billy Morgan and Max Parrot respectively.

By the looks of it, Yiwei only just managed to get the final invert around, and with such a small margain for error, we really can't see many other riders stepping up to the challenge just yet. Let's see what happens over the coming months.
