Snowboarder Shaun White made Olympic history Wednesday in Pyeongchang, South Korea, by winning the gold medal in the men’s halfpipe.
That medal is the United States’ 100th gold in the history of the Winter Games.
White also won the halfpipe event in Turin in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010, making him the only snowboarder with three Olympic golds. The 31-year-old now ranks third among Americans in individual winter gold medals, trailing only speedskaters Bonnie Blair and Eric Heiden, who have five each.
Never miss a local story.
The U.S. is only the second country to win 100 winter golds. Norway, as of Wednesday morning, had 121. Germany is third with 92.
White’s gold bring the U.S.’s medal count up to seven, including four gold.
