When everything was on the line, Shaun White made it look easy.

That's what the great ones do.

White dazzled with a 97.75 score on his third and final run to overtake Japan's Ayumu Hirano and win his third career halfpipe gold medal Tuesday night (U.S. time) at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Hirano scored 95.25 points on his second run. White, the final competitor in the competition, soared past Hirano to the top of the podium.

Check out White's clutch run to the gold. Incredible!
