VIDEO: Check out Shaun White’s gold-winning halfpipe run

Headed into his third run, United State’s snowboarder Shaun White was in second place Tuesday night behind Japan’s Ayumu Hirano with a score of 95.25.

What happened next was gutsy.

White recorded a near-perfect 97.75 on his final run which included consecutive 1440s and earned his third Olympic gold medal in the men’s halfpipe.

White’s final run and his emotional interview after the run can be watched below:
