    White's 2nd Run Produces Massive Score!

    Rachel Axon @RachelAxon

    White’s second run scores 98.50. He was already going to advance, but that’s bonkers. He should be top qualifier and will get to drop last in the final.

    It's not official yet, but it looks like Shaun White, Scotty James and Ayumu Hirano will be the top three qualifiers, in that order. This final's going to be intense.

    Pretty massive first run from Shaun White scores a 93.25 and moves him into first. Ben Ferguson (USA), Scotty James (AUS) and Ayumu Hirano (JPN) round out the top four and will get easily through to final, where they all will contend for gold.
