Double-threat Devin Logan, or “DLo” as her friends call her, is one of the most decorated female freeskiers out there. With multiple overall AFP titles, X-Games medals and World Cup podiums to her name, Logan can now add an Olympic slopestyle silver medal to her long list of accomplishments.
After winning the season-opening New Zealand World Cup halfpipe in August 2012, Logan suffered a blown knee, which forced her off skis for almost a year. Committed to rehab and her college education, she stayed busy. That included becoming an AFP and FIS certified judge, and she judged some events while injured to have a better understanding of her sport. That commitment and sport knowledge paid off just in time for her to hop back on the 2013-2014 competition circuit and qualify for a spot on the inaugural U.S. Olympic Slopestyle Team. In Sochi, Devin threw one of the best runs of her life to take home the silver medal and make freeskiing history. In addition to her Olympic success, Devin took the 2014 AFP overall title for the third time in her career and finished second in slopestyle.
At 15 Logan was on the U.S. Championships podium, finishing second in halfpipe skiing and jump-starting her career. During 2011, her first full competition season, the 17-year-old Vermont native made her X Games debut in both halfpipe and slopestyle, collecting her first X Games medal with a halfpipe bronze at the European X Games. But Logan wasn't done there. She earned her first U.S. halfpipe skiing title and the overall AFP crown to cap her rookie season. She went on to repeat the feat in 2012 with 12 podiums and two X Games medals, claiming her second AFP Overall Championship title.
