Congrats to Shaun White! He did it again! Two consecutive Olympic Gold Medals!
Last night at Cypress Mountain in Canada, White defied gravity in the Superpipe and took home the coveted Gold Medal for Team USA. Not only did White win with a seamless run, yet showcased the awe-stopping backside 1260 double Mctwist during his “Victory Lap” after already securing the 1st slot. The exceedingly high-risk trick – which some have called “The White Snake” – has been in works for sometime with White. Next level beyond belief. Progression in snowboarding, without a doubt, is going further and further…
Congrats also go out to fellow Olympic Snowboard Team member, Scotty Lago, who came in 3rd place and took home the Bronze Medal. Finnish wunder-kid, Peetu Piiroinen, made his homeland fans proud by lassoing in the Silver.
Well done and congrats again from the Active Team at Stylesight!
