American snowboarder Shaun White put down a near-perfect final run in the men's halfpipe final on Wednesday, February 14, at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
White entered the final after finishing first in the qualification round.
He scored 94.25 on his first run, 55.00 on his second and then pulled out back-to-back 1440s and a score of 97.75.
He beat Japan's Ayumi Hirano, who won silver with a 95.25, and Australia's Scott James, who scored 92.00.
It was a huge victory for White, who had said he'd never get over the disappointment of finishing fourth at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. He'd won gold at Vancouver 2010 and Turin 2006.
