Iouri "I-Pod" Podladtchikov nailed the run of a lifetime to win the halfpipe gold for Switzerland at the Sochi Games Tuesday and bring a stunning end to Shaun White's eight-year reign as Olympic champion.That proved enough to see off a pair of daredevil Japanese teenagers as well as overwhelming favorite White's challenge for a third successive gold medal.White, one of the biggest names in winter sports, finished fourth after remarkably dropping two tricks on his first run and only managing 90.25 after a couple of stumbles on his second.There were plenty of falls and errors in the opening round as the riders battled a bobbly surface and White was among them.
