What a night! Due to some very clever Olympia media dudes the Men’s Halfpipe Finals went down in the middle of the night (also referred to as ‘stupid-o-clock’) over here on this side of the big pond, but our news team of course was neither shocked nor stopped by this and set up a little media hub fuelled with beers, live stream and internet frenzy.
The main info you want now is this: Shaun White went bigger than anyone else and bagged his second Olympic gold medal, followed by reigning TTR World Champ Peetu Piiroinen in silver and Scotty Lago in third, scoring bronze.
Should you have fallen asleep somewhere in the course of the qualification to the finals or had any other reason (like getting up for work) holding you back from watching the action live, we have an epic minute-by-minute report of last night’s event for you.
But even if you watched it yourself – read it anyway, it’s just hilarious and includes expert commentary by various snowboard editors and photographers, Jenny Jones and a fair bit of web chaos craziness…
