Simon Francis Dumont is an American freestyle skier. Dumont is known for his exceptional amplitude in half-pipe competitions, regularly reaching heights up to 20 feet out of the pipe, and for his signature big-air trick, the superman double-frontflip.
Ski halfpipe, in which athletes perform various tricks while wearing skis in a halfpipe, will be an Olympic sport for the first time in Sochi. The sport debuted at the Winter X Games in 2002. Among the Americans to watch: Maddie Bowman, a world champion in 2012; 10-time X Games medalist Simon Dumont; and 2013 world champion David Wise. Medal contenders Gus Kenworthy and Devin Logan both compete in halfpipe and slopestyle.
