'Nitro' Girl Jolene Van Vugt Is Just Fine With Her Rookie X Games 7th Place Finish


Jolene Van Vugt gears up for competition in Brazil.

Winning isn't everything. Although "Nitro Circus Live" leading lady Jolene Van Vugt failed to medal at the 2013 X Games, she still beat out three other bad-ass chicks in her division, coming in 7th. Needless to say, we are super proud of the MTV2 star for completing her first-ever run in the elite extreme sports competition. You're still #1 in our hearts, Jol!

Just hours after her X Games debut, Jolene offered some insight on the "gnarly" track. "Wow what an experience tonight," she wrote on her Facebook page. "Although I really hoped to do a little better... I'm still learning every time I ride this stuff...The unknown is over and now know where I stand and what I need to work on and improve." Spoken like a true champion! And despite not meeting her personal goals this time around, Jolene is already focusing her attention on training for the next one. "Can't wait for another go at it in Barcelona #xgames," she tweeted. We'll be rooting for you to crack the top 5 in Spain, "Nitro" girl!

Catch more of Jolene and the "Nitro Circus Live" crew, Tuesday nights at 11/10c on MTV2!
