Shaun White Grabs Perfect X-Games Score
Winter X-Games superstar Shaun White had another big night as he pulls off the first ever perfect score in Winter X-Games History.
With the drama surrounding the upcoming Super Bowl it’s hard to remember that ESPN’s Winter X-Games are going on. Snowboard great Shaun White is the most decorated athlete at the X-Games, and last night he adds another achievement to his already long list by notching the first ever perfect score at the Winter X-Games.
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.
Shaun White has won the SuperPipe every year since 2008. He now has 17 medals total, 12 of them being gold. Before the perfect run, White already had the win in the bag with a score of 94.0, but topped even himself with the 100.
