Shaun White wins Olympic gold, yet again

SnowPack Shaun White and the U.S. Snowboard TeamMore

White, who needed 62 stitches after a crash during his preparation for PyeongChang in October past year, went too big on his second run as he touched down on an uneven landing to score 55.00.

Podladtchikov was unable to compete in PyeongChang due to a recent injury, but there were two other riders considered to be White's biggest challengers at these Olympics: Japan's Ayumu Hirano and Australia's Scotty James.

Snowboarder Shaun White today made history by securing the 100 gold medal for Team USA at the Olympic Winter Games. Having cruised to consecutive halfpipe gold medals in Turin and Vancouver, his aura appeared to fade after a botched attempt to double up at slopestyle in Sochi saw him leave without a medal.

Asked about the harassment allegations on Wednesday, White told reporters that, "I'm here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip and stuff".

In a change from previous Games, the snowboard halfpipe final included three runs instead of the usual two, giving the 12 competitors an extra chance to reproduce the very high quality seen in qualifying on 13 February.

On the morning of January 26, 1924, American Charles Jewtraw won gold in the 500m speed skating competition and became the world's first-ever winter champion and the United States' first-ever gold medalist, according to Olympic records.

White, who reportedly reached an out-of-court settlement a year ago with Lena Zawaideh, former drummer in his band Bad Things, was asked whether the claims had tarnished his legacy.

The Snapdragon 636 is based on Qualcomm's Custom Kryo 260 cores and has 30% or more performance compared to the Snapdragon 630. For snapshooters, the Chinese company has bumped the camera sensor to 20-megapixel and it will come with a front flash cam.

The gold is a redemption of sorts for White. "And, you know, I'm just truly sorry".

"I work so hard, and it is at times like these, obviously we are still focused, but you have to enjoy these experiences", James told Channel Seven.

He added: "I actually did the same trick that injured me here in the halfpipe today".

Fuller has previously posted on social media about hanging out with White and still believes the 31-year-old's achievements should still be applauded.

"Honestly it's one of the most challenging runs I've ever done". He finished fourth in the same event at the 2014 Winter Olympics, and required 62 stitches after slamming his face into a superpipe while training in New Zealand back in October.

"I definitely didn't mean any disrespect and the flag that's flying on my house right now is way up there", he said.

"I've been through so much to get here".
