Watch Scotty James’ top qualifying run, above:

Qualifying second and third respectively, Scotty James and Ayumu Hirano both put down incredible runs during men’s halfpipe qualifiers at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. We thought it would be worth revisiting them before halfpipe finals go down tonight. Both riders have the ability to make things a lot more difficult for Shaun White to secure gold, and we can’t wait to see what happens.
