Winter Olympics - Men's Halfpipe final

Olympics

ByTheMinWinterSports

Ayumu Hirano.... He leads after his amazing 2nd run. Okay, can he somehow improve? Well, it's possible. Let's go. Oh he landed flat, he's not got that one, he's going to have to rely on his 2nd run. He lost all his speed on that landing.

Hirano, he looks disappointed, 43.25. He's still got his 95.25. He's definitely got a medal.... but what colour!?

Scotty James now, he's also got a medal, can he get gold?? A small smile, deep breath, off he goes, big Front side twist 1060! Oooh he's down!! He takes bronze!

Mike Barry

Man his start was phenomenal!!!

He goes to the top of the pipe and waves to the crowd. He'll be happy enough with that, he's got a medal, he got a 5.5.m amplitude in his first hit. His score on this run is a 40.25, he keeps his 92.

Shaun White now, he looks like a stormtrooper in that kit! Is the force with him now? Here he goes, switch 1440, sky hook, oh wow, he's landed his massive run! Hirano looks on in amazement along with disappointment. Judges? Over to you...

Thats a gold

Mike Barry

Thats the MAN

He had a double McTwist, he chucked a 1260 at the end, he thinks it's big enough! He roared at the end! 97.75!!!! SHAUN WHITE TAKES GOLD!!

He is not popular in the snowboarding scene, but you can not deny his talent. That was incredible. He did exactly what he needed.
