Feb. 13 (UPI) — Shaun White delivered Team USA’s 100th gold medal in Winter Games history Wednesday on his final run in the men’s snowboarding halfpipe final.
The win gave the 31-year-old his third career gold medal at the Winter Games.
“I was just hoping and praying that they [judges] gave it to me,” White told NBC.
The four-time Olympian won his first gold medal at the 2006 Winter Games when he was 18 years old.
Team USA swept snowboarding events at the Winter Games, with Chloe Kim winning the women’s halfpipe, Jamie Anderson winning the women’s slopestyle, Red Gerard winning the men’s slopestyle and White winning the men’s halfpipe.
REDEMPTION FOR SHAUN WHITE!
