So much for Shaun White’s gimpy ankle.
“It's unreal. I've been wanting that 100 forever. Thank you so much, everybody tonight,” White, a two-time Olympic halfpipe gold medalist, said (via ESPN). “I came here on a mission: I couldn't compete in slope [the slope style event, because of a sprained ankle] 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.”
