Shaun White Reclaims Halfpipe Gold in Pyeonchang

Pyeongchang, South Korea....From the US Ski & Snowboard Team.."Shaun White (Carlsbad, Calif.) collected his third career Olympic gold medal, winning the halfpipe snowboarding at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. White added PyeongChang gold to his Torino 2006 and Vancouver 2010 gold medal collection. In addition, his victory was the 100th Olympic gold medal won by Team USA in Olympic Winter Games history. Team USA has also swept all four snowboard gold medals awarded this far at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, adding White’s title to both Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson’s slopestyle victories, and Chloe Kim’s halfpipe victory.

The leader after the first run with a score of 94.25, White was displaced by Japan's Ayumu Hirano, who upped the ante with a second run of 95.25. That set up the drama of White's final run, which he nailed, soaring to a 97.75 to win his third Olympic gold medal.

Hirano held on for the silver medal, while Scotty James of Australia made his first run score of 92.00 stand up for the bronze medal.

Ben Ferguson (Bend. Ore.) finished fourth, while Chase Josey (Hailey, Idaho) was sixth and Jake Pates (Eagle, Colo.) eighth.

Shaun, great performance, shows what you can do when you just don't want anything but the best, now, become an example to the young aspiring snowboarders that look up to you, you have a lot of people looking at you! Lastly, watch how you treat the flag of the country that gave you the chance to be the great athlete that you are! Dragging the flag and stepping on it isn't the best!

    I agree! Can't stand it when people wear the flag on clothing or paint it on their body or worst have it as a sticker on a truck! People need to learn the rules of respecting our flag!!!

      Go buy your own flagpole and start polishing it.
