Iouri Podladtchikov Yolo Flip at the Olympics Dethrones Shaun White From the Throne

Shaun White has been dethroned by the infamous YOLO flip. Shaun White is no longer king of the Olympic snowboard halfpipe with Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland, dominating. The X-Games champ, Shaun White failed to even place and take a medal.

Shaun White lost to a kid they call the “I-Pod,” and now, he may never hear the end of it.

An Olympic shocker this was. How big? White, the best snowboarder of his era, didn’t even win a medal. He finished fourth.

The 27-year-old American, who opted out of the Olympic slopestyle debut and put all his chips in the halfpipe, where he hoped to win a third straight gold medal, got knocked off by Iouri Podladtchikov, the Russian-born inventor of the trick that White could not master.

After dominating the sport over the past two Winter Games, White faltered on both of his runs in the finals Tuesday night. Iouri Podladtchikov of Switzerland, known as I-Pod, won with a score of 94.75, and two riders from Japan — Ayumu Hirano, with a score of 93.50, and Taku Hiraoka, with a 92.25 — took silver and bronze.

U.S. boarder Danny Davis said “I think it’s great the American public and the world now knows that there are other snowboarders besides Shaun White,” Davis said. “Shaun’s, don’t get me wrong, one of the most talented, one of the best riders there are, but there are guys who are just as good if not better and today Iouri was the best rider.”
