  • Rivals believe Shaun White is shown favoritism by judges

A two-time gold victor on the snowboarding halfpipe, White is hoping that the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang can serve as a bit of a redemption tour after failing to medal in Sochi's 2014 Games. "I figured I would send it on that last one".

Meanwhile, Shaun White reminded us why he's a two-time gold medalist in the pipe, throwing an insane 98.50 for his final run in the qualifiers. Currently, White is tied for having the most Olympic gold medals in snowboarding, so a gold in PyeongChang could leave him as the most decorated Olympic snowboarder ever.

Australian sensation Scotty James qualified for the snowboarding final Tuesday in the ongoing PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

Asked about starting the final as the highest-ranked boarder, White said he got the favorite slot and that it's a really good luck spot.

"I think Shaun White's done incredible things for our sport".

He may not have Olympic gold like White, who at 31 is eight years his elder, but time and potential that is now starting to be realised are on his side.


Hirano scored 95.25 on his second run. Why, it leaves us with none other than Shaun White.

"It was an unbelievable day and I came out expecting a really good fight and that's exactly what it was".

"I assumed Shaun would answer back like that", he said.

"Honestly, I feel like there have been times when I feel like I have been a bit shafted".

Ferguson was in second behind White, ahead of James and Hirano, after the first qualifying run and knew he was safely through to the final. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial no matter what package you choose, plus you can get a free Amazon Fire TV if you prepay two months. His strength, perseverance, and heart- a surgically-repaired heart- has earned him a place at four consecutive Winter Olympics. "I gotta just let it happen and I did". Filled with entertainment, wonder and an overall feeling that everything is going right, this is one event you will certainly want to tune into.
