But it was not to be. Iouri Podladtchikov pulled the upset, landing his "YOLO flip" - a double cork 1440 - in the process - a trick that Shaun had set out to conquer after Podladtchikov first landed it.

White's first run was full of uncharacteristic mistakes, as he squatted out the landing of his third hit, then slammed the deck on his fifth hit.
White came back on his second run and laid down a full run but didn't execute his run cleanly enough and finished 4th - off the podium and without a medal.
