Historically, Shaun White has owned the Slopestyle competition, but today he showed the true extent of his domination. White had the highest scoring run in X Games history  (96.00) en route to his record-setting 5th Slopestyle gold medal. He also set the record for number of Winter X medals (12) and Winter X gold medals (8).

White’s fellow American Scotty Lago got the silver and Norwegian Mikkel Bang got the bronze.

White will be competing later tonight in the SuperPipe elimination round.
