In an otherwise sloppy and mistake prone Winter Olympics, Shaun White took everyone’s breath away last night when he did his signature Double McTwist 1260 during the snowboarding half-pipe competition.

Although Shaun White had clearly already won gold in an earlier run, he saved his best trick for last. As White said of the Double McTwist 1260, he “just felt like I didn’t come all the way to Vancouver not to pull out the big guns. I put down the tricks I’ve worked so hard on.” The Double McTwist 1260 is a move that distinguishes Shaun White from the rest of the competitors as he is the only person in the world who can currently perform the trick.

The 2010 gold metal win for Shaun White was a defense of the one he earned in 2006 and solidified his position as one of the most dominant Olympians of all time.
