Gold Medal 100
Shaun White, halfpipe (snowboarding)
Feb. 14, 2018: PyeongChang, South Korea
White won Team USA’s latest and, to date, most significant gold medal in terms of milestones. But the nation’s 100th winter gold wasn’t his first. He also won men’s halfpipe gold in 2006 and 2010, which marked Team USA’s 71st and 83rd gold medals. White finished fourth at his third Olympic appearance in Sochi and reached redemption in PyeongChang. The 31-year-old is second in terms of U.S. winter athletes with gold medals, behind speed skaters Bonnie Blair and Eric Heiden, who have five apiece.
