Even with a bum ankle, Shaun White still dominated the competition in Superpipe at the 2012 X Games, winning his fifth-straight gold medal in the event. White scored a 94.00 on his first run, wrapping up the gold before his third and final run of the night.
But on his final run, White didn't just ride it out. Instead, he scored a perfect 100, finishing off the X Games in style. Not a bad way for the Superpipe champ to go out at this year's event.
Iouri Podladtchikov, better known as iPod, finished in second with a best run of 93. Ryo Aono vaulted into third, taking the gold medal, with an 86 on his final run of the evening.
It was White who stole the show, as always, though. After pulling out of Slopestyle, many wondered how well his ankle would hold up on Sunday night in his signature event. As he showed, it was no worse for wear as he made history to cap the X Games.
