Shaun White Lands Historic Third Gold And 100th For US In Winter Olympics

Shaun White cemented his status in the sport of snowboarding with a third Olympic halfpipe gold medal and a 100th overall at a Winter Games for Team USA. The 31-year-old pulled off an epic final run to add to his legacy following golds in Turin in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010.  White scored a remarkable 98.50 out of 100 to lead after qualifying, and maintained his momentum with a top score of 94.25 in the opening round of Wednesday’s final. The US team now trails only Norway (118 going into PyeongChang 2018) in the total of Winter Olympics gold medals.
