Flawless: Shaun White's perfect score punches ticket to Olympics
Shaun White made the U.S. Olympic team in grand fashion — scoring a perfect 100 at the U.S. Grand Prix event to set himself up as a favourite to win a third gold medal.
White's winning run Saturday included two of the toughest tricks on the halfpipe — the Double McTwist 1260 that he patented and the frontside double cork 1440.
