United States snowboard legend Shaun White has kicked off his Olympic season with a bang after booking a spot in this weekend’s halfpipe finals at the U.S. Grand Prix Olympic qualifying event in Copper Mountain, Colorado.

White scraped through qualifying with fifth-place finishing on the back of a score of 83.00 across two runs. Tomorrow (Saturday December 11) he faces a field stacked with talent including Olympic halfpipe silver medallist from South Korea Ayumu Hirano and 2021 X Games Aspen winner Yuto Totsuka.

After clinching gold at PyeongChang 2018 the 35-year-old has been on a long hiatus away from his sport. The three-time Olympic gold medal winner announced back in October his intentions to push his tally up to four. In order to achieve that feat White must first make the team. A podium finish in Colorado will help his case in booking a ticket to Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics in People's Republic of China.

Field for men's halfpipe final at US Grand Prix, Copper Mountain:

  • TOTSUKA Yuto (Japan)
  • KATAYAMA Raibu (Japan)
  • JOSEY Chase (USA)
  • GOLD Taylor (USA)
  • WHITE Shaun (USA)
  • HIRANO Ayumu (Japan)
  • HIRANO Ruka (Japan)
  • BURGENER Patrick (Switzerland)
  • HABLUETZEL David (Switzerland)
  • SCHERRER Jan (Switzerland)
