Shaun White explodes to claim Vert Gold at X Games 17

Shaun White, the biggest "brand name" in Action Sports proved that he is also the hardest worker. It was obvious that Shaun had put in the practice time on the vert ramp (and the gym...check his guns) as his run was clearly bigger and more stylie than the the other competitors. White had a fierce look on his face the entire time as he bested his friend,chief rival and defending 3-peat Champion ..Pierre-Luc Gagnon (PLG) in dramatic fashion on the final run of 12 minute jam session. Shaun had the power and the arsenal of tricks to complete his transition from the snowboard to the skateboard. He laid his claim to GOLD in both Summer and Winter X Games...and he had a blast doing it. The vid says it all.
