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 ilovepwnage.com 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…)
