Shaun White Olympics 2010 Gold Medal Run Video

Anyone who was watching the 2010 Winter Olympics last night knows exactly who the breakout star of the evening was. Lindsey Vonn may have shined in her women’s downhill gold medal run, but it was ‘flying tomato’ Shaun White who stole the show with his repeat gold medal win in the Men’s Snowboard Half Pipe.

Shaun White rocked it so hard in his first run that he could have done absolutely nothing during his second run and still won the gold. Instead, White pulled out his new signature double mctwist 1260 trick to thrill the crowd in a victory ride celebrating his win.

Even if you’ve already watched the run repeatedly, it’s well worth another view. Shaun White has once again proved he’s the cream of the crop in the snowboarding world and no younger whipper-snapper is going to steal his glory. We thank the fine folks over at for getting a copy of the video up for the fans who may have missed the awesomeness (and those of us who can’t stop playing it over and over…)

  1. Dear Shaun:

    If you are reading this you are an inspiration to me. My grandson was born with a congenital heart defect like you and I have been so unbalanced since he was born. You have been a breath of fresh air and the wind beneath my wings. I have new found hope and confidence in his well being since I learned about you and your great accomplishments. I do wish to meet you someday as you have helped me to understand life with a better perspective.
