Double McTwist 1260, frontside double cork 1440, boosting higher and landing cleaner….thats how Shaun White scored a perfect 100 at the U.S. Grand Prix in Snowmass and earned himself on the Olympic Team joining Ben Ferguson and Jake Pates.
Today went from the worst, to one of the best days of my life. I fell on my first two runs for finals, and ended up landing my 3rd and final run! Not only did I win the competition, I ended up getting a perfect 100 and securing my spot on the US Olympic Team! Thank you to everyone who has supported me and stood by my side. We’re going to Korea💪🏼 #Olympics #Victory #Thankful 📸: @ryanwach
….it wasn’t Shaun’s first perfect 100, check out this run from 2012 X Games:
The other thing that everyone sleeps on is if Shaun steps on a skateboard he is suddenly one of the best halfpipe riders in history (Bo Jackson of board sports). Dude is a freak athlete and I’m super happy we have him on our team going into Pyeongchang:
