On the sixth day of the Olympics, spectators crowded onto Cypress Mountain just outside of Vancouver to witness the men’s snowboarding halfpipe finals. Twelve men from six different countries had posted scores good enough to earn them a chance at gold. The name on everyone’s mind, however, was Shaun White. . . .
