    Snowboarder Shaun White's gold medal in halfpipe was being hailed across social media by a legion of fans, celebrities and fellow U.S. Olympians.

    White became the first snowboarder to win three Olympic gold medals. He also earned the United States its 100th Winter Olympics gold medal.

    White earned gold in Turin in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010, but didn't even crack the top three in Sochi. He won Wednesday with an electric third run in the halfpipe final.
