Snowboard superstar Shaun White scored only the second perfect 100 of his career as he qualified for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in style this weekend.

American White, a double Olympic half-pipe champion and 13-times Winter X Games winner, nailed his routine at the US Grand Prix in Snowmass, Colorado.

White, nicknamed ‘The Flying Tomato’, had needed 62 stitches in a facial wound after crashing during a half-pipe routine in New Zealand in October.

White scored his previous perfect score in a SuperPipe competition at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado in 2012.
