Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov took home the gold medal in the snowboarding halfpipe event. It was an upset and ended American snowboarder Shaun White’s reign in the event.

“I would definitely say that tonight was just one of those nights,” White said, via NewsDay. “The tricks I learned getting ready for the competition will carry on for a couple years in this sport. It’s a bummer. I had one of those nights.”

Podladtchikov is the inventor of the ‘Yolo’ trick that White has made his own.

“I saw videos of Shaun doing it really well,” Podladtchikov said. “I got bummed. I said, ‘Damn, that’s my trick and he’s doing it better than me. I guess I was doing it a little better tonight.”

Podladtchikov posted a really cool diagram of his gold medal winning run on his Instagram account labeling the five tricks he did.

1. Method air

2. Frontside 540 “crippler”

3. Backside double cork 1260

4. Frontside double cork 1080

5. Cab double cork 1440 “Yolo”
