San Diegans dominate at X Games Fifteen in L.A.

By  | 

X Games FifteenWhile the Chargers and Padres may dominate the professional sporting landscape in San Diego, one area that seems to get left by the wayside is the major action sports community in San Diego, which exists all over the county but is mainly concentrated around the North County Coastal region.

There were quite a few San Diegans who made the trip up to Staples Center in Downtown L.A. and the Home Depot Center in Carson to both participate and watch X Games Fifteen over the course of last weekend. The Men’s Skateboard Vert competition is especially notable, as all five of the finalists were from San Diego County.

Here are some of the notable results from San Diegan athletes:
