double cork

invented by shaun white???

im watching this thing on the olympics about the pipe competition and they seem to believe that shaun white created the 1080 double cork. wasnt it travis rice that first did it big air competitions? white invented teh 1260 double mctwist and brought the 1080 double cork to the pipe, but nbc is so misinformed and has just about no idea what they are talking about.

give credit where credit is due. Doubles have been around as long as professional snowboarding has been around. Damian Sanders was doing it back in 89.

I dont consider the double cork off a jump the same as a double cork in the pipe. So I'd say ya he invented it.

Didn't Vito do it in compitition first last year? If anything that means he brought it to the pipe. Speaking of... damn did he get F@#$ing hosed tonight. I'm not say white didnt claim first for sure, but both of vito's runs had more technicality than lago. WTF was up with that? Then they give the finnish guy the silver? Lago had style out the wazzoo to hold down second if loui didn't get it.

Am I alone here? Or did you guys see the same thing?

Sorry, I was majorly rooting for Vito, but he was sloppy tonight. The Olympic judges were bringing the hammer down tonight. Vito had sloppy landings and his straight air was sketchy. Lago was ultra clean. This is why they were saying you can't just go into the pipe and throw down nothing but spins.

As for the double cork, Vito landed the first one in competition. Doesn't mean he invented it though. Shaun was landing them outside competition just like he was landing the double mctwist in his pipe. Actually, I don't even think he invented it. He invented back to back double corks. They call it the millionaire hat trick or something.

Ditto for vito's scores, they were so borderline close, but the straight airs were counting for a lot and his weren't the tightest.
