Shaun White shed some tears as his snowboarding career came to an end at the Beijing Olympics.
White finished fourth in the men's halfpipe Thursday.
The three-time Olympic champion scored an 85 and was momentarily in second before strong runs by Australia's Scotty James and Japan's Ayumu Hirano of Japan.
The 35-year-old White executed his patented Double McTwist 1260 and then a frontside 1260 at the end, but it wasn't enough to make it onto the podium.
Hirano scored a 96 to win gold. James took silver and Switzerland's Jan Scherrer won bronze.
