Soldotna’s Cory Davis won a silver medal in the long jump competition Friday night to claim another medal at X Games Aspen.

Davis, 26, had also captured the bronze in the speed-and-style competition Thursday.

Davis now has six medals total in seven years of X Games competition. Three of the medals are silver, and three are bronze.

Davis flew through the air for 160 feet, 5 inches, in the sixth round to capture second place.

The top jumper was Heath Frisby of Idaho, who stayed aloft for 164-11. Colten Moore earned the bronze medal with his sled-aided leap of 157-4.

This was the second-straight year Davis earned a silver medal in the long jump. The other four medals were in speed and style.
