Shaun White Claims Third Olympic Halfpipe Gold

Next Up

There isn't much to say beyond that headline. Shaun White just showed age is nothing but a number by winning his third Olympic gold medal in snowboard halfpipe.

The 31-year-old just became the first U.S. Winter Olympian to claim three gold medals in a single event by dropping a blistering 97.75 in the final run of the halfpipe competition to best the score of 95.25 by Japan's 19-year-old Ayumu Hirano. And, in a fortuitous turn of events, White's gold medal was the 100th gold medal won by the United States in the history of the Winter Olympic Games.
