Default Shaun White is amazing!

Great day yesterday for the USA..........moments of courage for the women skiers with Lindsey Vonn winning gold and amazing athletic skill on the halfpipe. Shaun White easily won gold with his first run and topped his score with his victory lap. What's even more amazing is the fact that he had two open heart surgeries when he was one year old for a heart defect.

If you missed him last night, check it out........ http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/ass...hite+wins+gold

When I watched the other performances, it makes you even more impressed with Shaun's abilities. Alot of them wiped out and no one came close to his height in the air. I bet alot of kids were watchng him, dreaming of doing that stuff on their skateboards and alot of parents did not sleep well last night.
