9. 2010: Shaun White’s glorious half-pipe run
After taking gold in Torino in 2006 at just 19 years old, Shaun White defended the title in brilliant fashion at the Vancouver 2010 Games. As spectacular as his competitors were, no one was able to come close to White’s effortless ability to soar high above the pipe while pulling off combinations of spins, flips and grabs never seen before. White’s gold medal run was practically flawless, and makes you wonder how much further the sport can be taken. If there’s anyone who can answer that, it’s Shaun White himself, at these upcoming Olympics.
