American Shaun White was the two-time defending champion and was back, looking to become the first man to win the same Winter Olympic event at three consecutive Olympic Games. Early on the boarders had multiple complaints about the halfpipe, but it was altered slightly, at the athletes’ requests, and functioned well. White qualified for the final where he was most concerned about the Russian-born Swiss rider, Iouri Podladtchikov, known as the I-Pod, who was the 2013 World Champion. In the second run of the final, I-Pod landed his signature trick, the YOLO (You Only Live Once), which consists of two flips with four full revolutions. It would clinch him the gold medal when White bobbled several landings to drop completely off the podium, finishing fourth. The silver and bronze medals went two young Japanese riders – the silver to 15-year-old Ayumu Hirano and the bronze won by 18-year-old Taku Hiraoka. When asked for a quote after his victory I-Pod played off the Sochi motto of “Hot, Cool, Yours” and noted, “It’s Hot, Cool, and It’s Fucking Mine.”
