If you missed the ESPN Winter X-Games this weekend, you missed history in the making–as always is the case when your talking about Shaun White.
It was expected that Shaun White was going to arrive at the X-Games in Aspen, Colorado and shut down the SuperPipe competition. What we didn’t expect was that in order to do it, he would come back from a bum ankle that kept him out of some of the other competitions he really wanted to be in.
We also didn’t expect that after all but locking up his 5th consecutive Winter X-Games SuperPipe gold medal–that’s a record by the way–in his first SuperPipe run that White would go for two more runs (instead of victory laps), just to show us his latest trick–a frontside double cork 1260. Enter “History in the making, Part II,” because after that third run and landing that trick, White earned the first ever perfect 100 score in the events history.
If you don’t know who Shaun White is, get familiar! Check out the video of his historic run below.
