Shaun White misses out on gold

For the first time in a very long time, Shaun White will not medal at a Winter Olympics. Despite being a heavy favorite, he stumbled in his two runs, ending up in fourth place with Switzerland's Yuri Podladchikov ending up in first place. White has been the most dominant snowboarder of all time, winning gold medals at the 2010 and 2006 games and taking home at least one gold medal in every Winter X Games save one since 2003. His dominance wasn't going to last forever, but seeing an Olympic halfpipe podium without him in the middle is still a jarring sight.

How surprised are you that Shaun White did not win a halfpipe medal at the Sochi Olympics?
