Winter Olympics 2018: White almost perfect as he advances to halfpipe final

Shaun White

Pyeongchang, February 13: Shaun White advanced to the halfpipe final at the Winter Olympics after an almost perfect run in Pyeongchang on Tuesday.

The United States have already won three gold medals in snowboarding events and White is in perfect position to add to that.

White advanced to Wednesday's 12-man final with his second qualifying run score of 98.50 in South Korea.

Australia's Scotty James finished the two-run qualifying in second with a score of 96.75, followed by Japan’s Ayumu Hirano (95.25).

White, who is competing at his fourth Games, won his first Olympic gold in 2006 at Turin and then again at Vancouver in 2010.

He finished fourth in Sochi at the last Winter Games, but is a favourite in Pyeongchang, and he showed why on Tuesday.
