  • He is the only athlete to win five consecutive golds in superpipe and the third to record that streak in any discipline
  • White recorded the highest ever superpipe X Games score with a 100.0 on his victory lap
  • White landed back-to-back double McTwist 1260s on his perfect scoring run after missing the trick on his second

QUOTES
Shaun White
For me, it (the competition) wasn’t complete until I landed that run. I am glad I did. I have been to so many X Games now, and I will forever remember this. Getting that 100 score, the perfect score. It is crazy.

It’s unreal, I have wanted that 100 forever.
