Default Shaun White's Crash At Olympic Qualifiers today

Happened during his first run in the Slopestyle Qualifiers while trying a cab double cork. Skip to 0:38 to see the accident.

The Shaun White haters of this forum will surely rejoice.



PS- He went on to qualify for the slopestyle team in his later runs.

Nothing more true than those last statements about hard pack and shoulder separation; something I know all to well.

Did anyone else here them say on the full broadcast the double wildcat was trademarked and they can't call it that? Is that serious?

He is getting old, and Mark Mcmorris looks a good notch above the rest.... not a bad idea to retire from competition. No shame in that.
