March 2, 2013

The men’s halfpipe Finals finished with Shaun White taking yet another 1st place title with a score of 95.58 – well ahead of his competition. 2nd place winner, the 14-year-old Ayumu Hirano, showed his prowess as perhaps the most exciting up-and-coming rider in the sport with a score of 87.40.
