Snowboarding: White puts young pretender Hirano in his place

Snowboarding: White puts young pretender Hirano in his place

Cha Gwen Sol put the burger on the menu at his restaurant, Santa Burger, as an Olympic gimmick-it's priced at around $920-so he never imagined that Shaun White himself would show up to order one.

And Fuller, who competes in the slopestyle event on Sunday, is another who believes the hype helps White.

At the PyeongChang Olympics, American snowboarding legend Shaun White won gold in the halfpipe - repeating a feat he first managed 12 years ago.

He aced his qualification runs at Phoenix Snow Park, posting a top score of 98.50 to lead qualifying for Wednesday's morning final (which can be seen Tuesday night in the U.S.).

Why did Steve Kerr let his players coach against the Suns?
Most likely no one is going to say this, but this is borderline one of the most disrespectful things you can do to another team. Iguodala sat in Kerr's chair breaking down the plays to his teammates while Kerr stood a few feet away with his assistants.

White broke down in tears after his tricks stunned the judges who rewarded him with a near ideal score.

"I think Shaun White's done incredible things for our sport".

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea-Snowboarder Ayumu Hirano came within a centimeter of being killed while competing less than a year ago, so winning a silver medal February 14 at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics was not such a bad result. White previously nabbed gold in halfpipe at Turin 2006 as well as Vancouver 2010.

"I came out and just did it the Australian way and just gave it a real hard crack", he said.

"If I can contribute to that by resigning, it will have been worth it", he said outside the SPD headquarters. In a cartoon on Tuesday, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily showed Nahles with a whip riding an SPD snail.

"That was our game plan today, I wanted to try and drop later in the field tomorrow for finals", James said. James was second on 96.75 and Hirano third on 95.25.

While Ayumu looked unhappy with proceedings it was all smiles between White and James.

Hailey's Chase Josey, who was in third place after the first of three rounds, ended up in sixth. Ferguson was born in Boise and lives in Bend, Ore. "I think he's going to continue on and be awesome in the sport and I hope to see him in China". People forget you have to qualify. However, White matched Hirano with consecutive 1440s of his own, scoring a 97.75 in the final run of the competition.

"It was pretty nerve wracking not getting that first one down", said Pates, 19, of Eagle, Colo.

Forward of ultimate Daytona 500, Danica Patrick retains feelings in examine
Otherwise, I wouldn't have been doing it. "And that transition started previous year ". Patrick told The Associated Press that Rodgers will be at the Daytona 500 .

"I knew I had it in me", he said of two qualifying runs in the 90s. "I don't think so". But I'm definitely proud - very proud - to be a part of Team USA and being an American and to be representing for everyone back home.
