Ayumu Hirano, Scotty James just short in epic men’s halfpipe final

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) Ayumu Hirano already has an Olympic silver medal back home in Japan. The budding snowboarding superstar didn’t plan on leaving Phoenix Snow Park with another one. Yet it happened anyway because Shaun White happened, as he tends to do with the world watching. White’s scintillating final run in the men’s halfpipe final vaulted him past Hirano atop the podium for his third Olympic gold, relegating Hirano to silver for the second time in four years. No offense, but Hirano wonders if maybe the positions should have been reversed.
