Not just a halfpipe dream

Dude, Shaun White is the man, and anyone who doubts the Flying Tomato can gaze upon his gold medal. The snowboarder easily won the men's halfpipe with a masterful first run and scored far above the second-place contender. By the time hissecond run came around, he was already assured the gold, a victory that caused his coach to become rather vocal in his joy. In White's victory lap, he not only laid down the Double-McTwist-1260, but also scored higher than his initial run. --Hanh Nguyen, Zap2it Related: Shaun White wins gold, coach celebrates with swear fest
