What he did, by the standards of his sport, was flawless: 28 seconds of snowboarding, five jumps, five smooth landings, 15-1/2 revolutions of airborne twists, and finally, a swerving stop at the bottom of the halfpipe, where Shaun White saw his score. Shaun White officially qualified for the halfpipe final at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Tuesday, February 13. But Australian Scotty James will give white a run for his money and will nearly certainly earn a spot on the podium Tuesday. After capturing gold in this event in 2006 and 2010, he finished a disappointing fourth in Sochi in 2014 as all Americans were kept off the podium for the firsttime since the halfpipe was introduced to the Olympics in 1998.
It's day three at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, and Monday's primetime events will be filled with some of the Games' biggest stars. White left the course after posting a 98.5, the best score in the field.
"I assumed Shaun would answer back like that and that's competition". In the end, it was Shaun in first, Scotty in second, and Ayumu in third heading into finals.
"I watched these young guys put in these incredible, and it fired me up", White said. The final will also include Americans Ben Ferguson, Chase Josey, and Jake Pates.
