Shaun White — you may remember him as the red-headed snowboard champ from the 2010 winter Olympics — made his mark on the 17th annual Summer X Games, held Thursday through Sunday (July 28 – 31) in Los Angeles.
More than 200 athletes competed in skateboarding, motocross and rally-car racing events that involved things like grinding, catching air and scads of other extreme stuff, but it was the show-stopping White who again grabbed much of the attention — this time riding a skateboard.
