Shaun White won his third Olympic gold medal in the halfpipe Wednesday, earning Team USA”s 100th gold medal in the Winter Olympics in the process.

White has long been the face of U. S. snowboarding ever since his days as the “Flying Tomato.”

His long hair might be gone, but his utter dominance on the board is not.

Here’s how celebs and the rest of Twitter reacted to his win.
