White Wins Superpipe Gold With Perfect Run At X Games

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — With the gold medal already his, Shaun White laid down a victory lap to remember — a perfect one.

White earned his fifth consecutive superpipe gold Sunday night at the Winter X Games in Aspen, earning a perfect 100 on his third and final run.

Says White: “It’s unreal. I’ve been wanting that 100 forever.”

He scored a 94.00 on his first run and wiped out on his second run, but no one could catch him. Iouri Podladtchikov finished second, followed by Ryo Aono.

With the gold, White is the third Winter X five-peat athlete, joining Nate Holland in snowboardcross and Tucker Hibbert in snocross.

White competed despite a left ankle injury that forced him to withdraw from the slopestyle competition.
