I’m not even sure how multiple judges see the same run and with no conferring with each other, score 100% for all elements of the same run. But today, it happened at the US Grand Prix in spectacular style.

What the, even? White included a Double McTwist 1260 and a frontside double cork 1440 in the winning run.

THIS is how he did it and secured a place in the US Olympic Team for PyeongChang in the process.
