U.S. Snowboarding Star Shaun White 2022

U.S. Snowboarding Star Shaun White feels 'relief' after making halfpipe final at Beijing Olympic

Shaun White let up just the tiniest bit as he jerked his body around for a trick

his signature trick, a trick he has landed without a hitch hundreds of times before.

The next thing he knew, he said was thinking, "Wow, I only have one more chance to get this done."

After an untimely fall in the first round of qualifying, the most-successful halfpipe rider in history turned the drama up to 11 on Wednesday

coming through huge in a land-or-go-home run that put him into the medal round at his fifth and final Olympics.

"I can't tell you the relief I felt off that last hit,'' White said. "It was just the thrill and excitement to be going to finals."

White found himself there when he eased up ever so slightly on "The Tomahawk"

a trick he invented more than a decade ago that involves a frontside takeoff and 1260 degrees of spin at a diagonal, off-axis angle.
