    The day before, the 19-year-old Russian athlete won the parallel giant slalom (PGS) event at Park City Mountain Resort, Utah, beating top-ranked snowboarder Roland Fischnaller.

    Dmitry Loginov has won his second gold medal at the championship in two days, beating Slovenian Tim Mastnak. His victory brought Russia its first-ever parallel slalom (PSL) gold at a world championship.

    "I can't believe it", Loginov said, according to the International Ski Federation website. "I'm only 19. I'm the youngest world champion of all time, and it's just incredible".
