Shaun White five-peats in Winter X SuperPipe
Jan 30, 2012 10:50 PM CST

Shaun White, the superstar of halfpipe snowboarding, launched himself right into the history books with a five-peat and a perfect 100-point score at Sunday’s X Games in Colorado.

The 100-pointer came during his third and final run down the X Games superpipe.  Any normal mortal human being would have been satisfied with a five-peat X Games record. But not this ginger-haired-super-human, in, what was essentially a victory lap, White delivered what is quite possibly the greatest run ever done. The run climaxed with a frontside double cork 1260, which is the first time anyone landed this trick in a contest.

The amazing part about all this is the feat came after an earlier ankle injury.  “It’s unreal,” White told ESPN, “I’ve been wanting that 100 forever. Thank you so much, everybody, tonight. I came here on a mission: I couldn’t compete in Slope and it kind of broke me. I didn’t know what to do. I was sitting around icing my ankle wondering if I could even ride tonight, and I kind of took out a little bit of that anxiety and anger that I couldn’t compete in Slope in the pipe tonight.”
