"I've left a lot in the tank for tomorrow and I'm feeling really good in the pipe", he told Channel Seven. "I think it's great for the sport and it's great for a guy like me that needs the motivation - I'm excited for the final".

His strength, perseverance, and heart- a surgically-repaired heart- has earned him a place at four consecutive Winter Olympics. But the debate in snowboarding has a distinct set of layers, partly because the riders' tricks are progressing so quickly - what is flawless, then? - and partly because White, in fame and wealth, so towers above his competitors. He finished with a score of 98.5. Filled with entertainment, wonder and an overall feeling that everything is going right, this is one event you will certainly want to tune into.

"It's a good contest, it was going off like a fish milkshake and I was just happy to be in it having a good time so I'm walking away happy, pleased, safe - it's good. It's ok though, I'm looking on to the next one".
