Description (Brief):
Despite being born with a congenital heart defect, Shaun White (b. 1986) began snowboarding at age seven and has gone on to win two Olympic gold medals, and is the most decorated athlete in X Games history, with seventeen medals, twelve of them gold. In 2003 White became the first athlete to medal in both the summer and winter X-Games in two different sports; snowboarding and skateboarding. At the 2012 Winter X Games, he earned the only perfect score ever achieved in the Superpipe event, winning gold for a fifth consecutive time. White used this Burton board at the 2010 Winter X Games, landing two back-to-back double corks and ending with a Double McTwist 1260.
