Shaun White Wins X Games Gold Again
Though Shaun White has garnered a reputation as heavy partier when he’s not on the slopes, he’s still most famous for dominating the snowboarding competition at the X Games. White achieved a perfect score in his final snowboard superpipe run last year, and it seems as though he has kept up his skills, despite his other troubles.
At this year’s X Games in Aspen, Colorado, Shaun White made history (again) by winning the snowboard superpipe competition for the sixth year in a row. White now has 15 X Games gold medals, including some for skateboarding in the summer X Games.
White bragged about the accomplishment via Twitter:
White’s superpipe run was the same one that received a perfect score at last year’s X Games. Though he only scored a 98 total this year, it was enough to put the gold medal out of reach for his competitors.
