Shaun White Wins Gold at Pyeongchang

Shaun White, after his 14 year career, finally sealed his legacy of one of the best snowboarders to live, by winning the gold medal on the men’s halfpipe in Pyeongchang. It was an extremely close match between him and the Japanese olympian, Ayumu Hirano. In the first run, White led the competition but at the second run, Hirano was in a good position for gold. White needed to one-up Hirano’s 1440 spin with two 1440 spin and he did. White also landed his signature move on the run and the final result: an astonishing 97.75 run.

After his victory, White was emotional: he dropped on his knees and tears came down on his face. He then embraced his mother, Cathy White, and cried even more. White redeemed himself after landing only the fourth place in the 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi. This is also a redemption run for White because he faced a terrible accident in New Zealand in 2015.

The reactions on social media were not congratulatory, but drew light to a lawsuit against White in 2016. He was accused by a  former drummer in a band he was in, Lena Zawaideh, of sexual harassment and sending explicit messages. White responded by admitting about the messages but not the other claims. He expressed his apology to Zawaideh.

Finally, Shaun has a lot of things planned in the future. The most important is joining the 2020 Summer Olympics in skateboarding. With this win, he also won the United States’ 100th gold medal.
