Shaun White McTwists Into Gold
While almost everybody expected Shaun White to win gold again, I don't know if anyone expected how awesome he'd be to watch. Describing his performance that night, Twitter and Facebook were awash with the descriptors: OMG, holy sh*t, and unbelievable.
Before he even hit the pipe for his second run Shaun had secured the gold medal. Still, that didn't stop him from pulling out his super-sized Double McTwist 1260 — two board-over-head flips inside of 3.5 turns. To date, Shaun is the only person in the world who can perform this.
