Shaun White flies high under the stars

The USA’s Shaun White flies high, very high, with his snowboard, under the stars in the half-pipe at Cypress Mountain, on 17 February 2010 at the Vancouver Games.

See in detail each of the moves performed by the “Flying Tomato”, including his special, the Double McTwist 1260, which he is the only person in the world to perform. Shaun White earned the highest score ever awarded in this discipline, retaining the title he won four years earlier in Turin and electrifying the crowd who pressed into the stands so as not to miss a second of his outstanding run.
